So I have been knitting...

It is so funny how as the weather cools I turn back to my knitting needles, discarded in all the excitement of spring, gardening, biking, and all things outside. The women of Caratunk have a Stitch and Bitch session every Friday night running from November - till it gets nice out. The first meeting was mostly drinking and bitching, and by the third meeting, we actually all brought our knitting needles. So basically it takes us all about a month to get our shit together.

As usual, I have 5+ projects going on right now. One is Branching Out designed by my all-time favorite knitting designer, Susan Pierce Lawrence. Check out her blog here: I Am Knitting As Fast As I Can. I knit her Forest Canopy Shawl for my grandmother last winter.

Yes, I am very proud of that shawl, my grandmother loved it, so did I.

I also have casted on a sweater - the Rogue Sweater by the Girl From Auntie. Actually, it was casted on in March 2009, but I hope to finish the project by March 2010. I am so in love with this sweater, but I am not in love with the yarn I choose for it. I might have to...gasp...RIP this out and start over with new stuff. Sucky.

Another favorite designer of mine is Grumperia , and I am working on her Mother of Pearl Scarf Who says scarfs are boring?

Well, off to the needles...
