Just in Time...

I finished Molly's Obama longies just in time to get started on the new month's round of custom orders, wooHoo!



In addition to the work knitting this month I've decided to make a special project just for myself. I've had this pattern in my Ravelry queue for a long time and keep coming back to it, so when a bunch of other knitters I love decided to do a knit-along this month I couldn't help myself. It is the February Lady sweater, and I'm doing it in Cascade 220 Heathers series 'Irelande'. If it comes out the way I hope it does I will probably knit another one in some super nice hand dyed yarn, but I want to test it out before I make the investment. We shall see...


I just spoke with my Peru contact and he said that my shipment just cleared customs and should be here in the next couple of days. He also said there were a couple of surprises in there, so I am going to be stalking the poor UPS man until I can see what they are!

Unfortunately, I got sidetracked by work knitting and haven't even managed to cast on the sweater! I think it is going to have to wait until Spring Break when I won't take as much work. I can knit it while overlooking the beach and wear it when I get back into the mountains.
