Sorry for the lack of posts, but I've been BUSY! And it's summer... I don't feel like knitting all of the time. I know. GASP. Did I really just say that??
So what am I working on? Well, those socks are still on the go. And I started some arm warmers last weekend. And then I frogged them because they weren't turning out as I'd hoped. But I'm going to cast them back on. I promise I have a pattern in my head that is dying to be made.
I'm also working on this shrug/bolero thing:
I have been for almost a full month!! (I got the pattern from here.)

Thus far, I think I'm going to love it! In fact there's been at least three times when I've gotten dressed in the morning in the morning and totally wished that it was done so that I could wear it! I already have an outfit planned!

The only thing I don't like about this bolero? That I was too stupid to understand the pattern. It's a top down sweater. No problem there. I've made tons of those. But this one? There was just something about the pattern I didn't understand.
It was that you add on the collar AFTER you've knitted the rest. See how I'm knitting up the collar now, picking up one stitch on every RS row? Ingenious. But a note about that might have been nice.
But I'm so excited to get this one done. Hopefully by the end of the weekend, I'll have a finished project to blog about. Finished project? Imagine that!

How did you know? I actually think this bolero would look cute with a dress too! (fingers crossed!)
