Projects


Three of The Projects that I am playing with this week...
The top one is The 10 Hour Adult Sweater being created in Homespun.. I had so many skeins of this color because it was on sale last year for $2.00 a piece.. So naturally I bought all that was there... So far I made two Capelets and this Sweater...
I did the five hour baby sweater years ago when I first started knitting... I liked it very much so I thought I would give the Adult one a try... I have to do a bit of adjusting in the pattern because the finished size says 42 or something and I am about a small to medium... I'll let you know how I make out..

The one on the left is a Baby Sweater in the making in Papaya color of Simply Soft... I started with a Sirdar Pattern but ended up changing it because I did not want a raglan sweater.. I wanted set in sleeves.. So this will be another half pattern/ half mine :)

And then there is the Hiking Scarf.. Its growing... Slowly but I do like the pattern very much... Once I spend more time on it.. It will go faster... But then ..Whats the hurry??? I'm only going to start something else when thats almost done :)

I love that color of simply soft. That is one of my favorite yarns for baby things and I love their line of 'brights'.

Nice new projects, Penny! You sure keep busy, huh?

I like the papaya color! I just got myself few skeins of Simply Soft that was on sale for $1.47 each! I got Copper Kettle color! I think about making my Tubey with it...

I forgot to ask... What pattern do you follow for making the Capelets? Is it a Lion Brand pattern?
