Sweater Switch

Well the baby Genevieve sweater ended up going to baby Claire instead. When I talked to Genevieve's mom she said she weighed more than I thought she would at this point and I realized that she was probably already too big for the sweater, hence the move to give the sweater to Claire. Here is my newest neice in the sweater (and matching hat). I am happy with how it turned out and her mom liked it a lot! (http://www.debbieblissonline.com/books/bkb/index.htm)
Merry Christmas baby! I also knitted a hat for my father-in-law, but didn't end up with any pictures of that one. Bummer! I hope everyone had a Happy Holiday!

I'm in Love

I can't believe I finally got the turkish cast on method to work! It wasn't too hard, but I couldn't figure out how to get a sock going at first. Then came some helpful hints from the fabulous knitters in the blogging world and hence the sock! I can't decide if I should just keep knitting this one or take a break to get the second sock started and knit them both at the same time. I will have to keep thinking about that! I am really enjoying knitting this sock so far!!

It's Gonna Take a Miracle

Well the title says it all, it is gonna take a miracle for me to ever get Blaze finished. I feel as if I have been shot down in a Blaze of glory...ok bad humor!! I have made some significant progress since the last time I posted this project, but I have been working on it for a year (on and off of course; more off than on) I think or pretty darn close to it! I am about 10 inches into it and have to make it to 13.5 before I can start some sort of shaping...maybe I can crank it out this weekend, especially with the forcasted dump of snow we are supposed to get here in the midwest!
