Sweater Mania

I finished the Half and Half Sweater tonight. I think it turned out pretty well.
I love the hand dyed yarn. It was a lot of fun to work with. Plus so soft and cushy! And I'm not just saying that because it's my hand dyed yarn :) Tomorrow I'm going to try and write up the pattern. Then I'll have some people test knit it (any takers?) and try and decide if I want to offer this for free or for a little fee.

Now I've taken up work on the Warm Woolies Mystery Sweater #2 (a.k.a. the Calda Lana).
Why have I not been knitting on this? I don't even know. I'm just on the plain stockinette for the sleeves. For some reason I was thinking there was lot more to this than there really was. But now I'm back on track and I'm knitting away.

I've got a lot of things on my knitting list:
Baby blanket due by the middle of July
Test knit sweater due by the end of June
Warm Woolies test sock (no due date but need to be knit in a timely manner)
Another pair of socks for myself
A clapotis scarf
Other stuff that seems to be alluding me at the moment but will probably show up out of the blue on the blog

And...I've also been in talks with my LYS, Rare Purls, about teaching classes there this summer! Their store will open the first of June and hopefully I'll get the chance to help out a bit. I'm just excited about having an LYS in my area!

Only 4 more days of school with children and then 3 days of post planning (yeah, I have to be back the day after Memorial Day, total suck fest). The countdown to freedom is on.

Your sweater turned out so cute!! I think you did a great job :) Normally I would totally offer to test knit it for you, but I've already got a test knit in laceweight yarn (eek!) on the needles and I'm horrified at the thought I might not finish it in time. But if you have another one someday, don't be afraid to ask - I love helping other knitters :)

Hope you're having a restful weekend!
