Momentary monogamy

Hi! I've been having a great stretch of knitting. I cast on a second Saffron cardigan.....

 .....and knit only that until after the runched belt detail. Then I got distracted by the wool in my closet and decided I need to cast on a February Lady cardigan. Which I'm calling a July Lady since that's our equivalent winter month in the southern hemisphere.

I'm using SMC Northern Worsted wool and I love it. It is like knitting a hug. I hope hope hope it fits as well as I want it to.

And lastly, because it is too small for its own FO post, here is the charity hat hubby encouraged me to make:

The pattern is Dizzy, and the yarn is Jarol Sweet Briar DK.  

That's it from me this week, see you next time!

Oh yes, I'm in love........

I am a very happy girl this week. I kicked it into high gear and got the sleeves done on my top. And I love it, blemishes and all. And no, I'm not going to point out all the mistakes. I can live with them, and no one else needs to look that hard!

I am now fairly certain the girls take better pictures than I do.

Pattern: Baby Cables and Big Ones too
Yarn: Stylecraft Life DK

I hit the stall button once I got to the sleeves. Then I put my big-girl pants on, bought some longer DPN's, and they flew off the needles. Turns out I love the sleeves most of all. I'm pretty sure that Suvi Simola is a genius. Even my  husband said it was my best project ever. Uhm, yeah, because the pattern kicked butt

Also awesome, I have enough yarn left over to knit a wee cardigan I have my eye on (at least, I think there is enough left over).

Take care, happy crafting!!
