On the Needles 2/28/2014

I have a finish. It is not the most perfect. Matter of fact I had quit a few bumps along the way. But, for a first time sweater I don't think it was half bad. It made it through the was, not with out problems, so hopefully it won't fall apart anytime soon.

It is still a little damp but it is done. At least my numbers will change on the yarn report. Not that it will make a big difference since I have yarn to add.
Loopy Ewe has the new Spring Challenge out so I bought some yarn for that and started working on a Honey Cowl. I made one already but it was the small version. I am now making the larger version. Hopefully I can get it done in time. I was going to try and participate in the fabric challenge as well but I just have too much stuff to do and I am way behind. Sometimes you just have to say no.
I am using Lorna's Laces in Cornelia. I love the feel of the yarn and even though it wasn't really turning out the way I thought I am rather liking it now. It just looks like a piece of woven fabric. Now to go make some progress on it. Well, after kit cutting, machine piecing and whatever else I can come up with to do.
For more knitting ideas head on over to Judy's.
Have a great weekend.


  1. Lovely sweater. You'll enjoy wearing it.

  2. Love that Honey Cowl pattern! Your yarn is very pretty, too.

  3. Thank you. I just wish I could knit this without having to concentrate so much. It is a simple pattern but if my mind wanders I mess up.
