Crofters Cowl FO

This is a Crofter's Cowl in Malabrigo. Fun knit, even the grafting. I have a few other finished projects, some are still blocking.

I've cut my Xmas knitting this year and just have 2 sweaters to finish up. I think the other items I thought I would make are just going to be put on the back burner. I hope to knit mostly for me in 2009. I do want to finish up the baby knits for the co-worker but those are mostly fun so I don't mind.

Kitties and WIPS

The kitties are at the vet tonight after going in to be spayed today. I am taking a half day tomorrow to pick them up and then am taking all day Friday off to hang out with them and knit.

I have been working on the mystery beret on Ravelry through Wooly Wormhead. I also have a Crofters Cowl to be grafted while I am home. I completed a cowl of my design only to cast off when I got home from work today and it was tighter than I wanted so I ripped the whole thing out and will redo it on larger needles and with more stitches. The cowls have been my lunch knitting. Next week, I will probably work on a Darkside Cowl.

The baby blanket is coming along, I am over half done. I delivered the vest I finished off for my co-worker and a matching hat at a meeting we all had to go to in Stamford, CT. I still hope to get the blanket in the mail around Thanksgiving but I think it will more likely be after as I haven't been working on it as much. I still plan to use the rest of the yarn for 2 sweaters and maybe another blanket.

My plans for the new year are a few sweaters for me and my queue on Ravelry is growing longer with sweaters and vests. That is nice as it was mostly lace and small items before the sweater/vest additions.
