|Devon's future sweater|
My longest outstanding project is Devon's Sweater. It is a beautiful finished pattern, but I don't really like the construction method so I've been having a hard time working on it. I'm almost to the interesting part so hopefully it will go faster for a while. I gave up on the idea of finishing it for Christmas and decided to aim for her birthday in February instead.
Brenna's Sweater. Which is, of course, the project I just started. Brenna needed something with long sleeves. I'd planned to have it finished by this weekend, but got derailed by my eye injury. I should wrap this up in the next week though. I just need to do the sleeves and find buttons. Okay, I probably won't get the buttons this week, but I should finish the actual knitting.
the Sock Yarn Blankie . I don't actually plan on having this finished anytime soon. I know full well that this will be a long term project. I wanted something to do with all my scraps and something to work on when I get sick of my main projects. I'm not sure how big I'm going to make it. I figure a baby blanket is a reasonable goal to start with (especially with Grandbabies starting to arrive!) but I might make it into a throw size for me when it gets cold. I'm not even making a possible goal of anything bigger than that. I'll save that for larger than sock yarn! I really am enjoying knitting this blanket and might very well cast one on in worsted weight scraps in a couple of years when this one is finished.
I also need to make Brenna's stocking before Christmas. When Cameron was a baby I made crazy quilt stockings for everyone in the family. I'm not actually over due on this, a few of the other kids haven't gotten theirs in time for their first Christmases, Morgan actually missed two Christmases being born only one week before her first. I didn't get pictures since I haven't even dug out the fabric yet.
I also still need to finish the projects I FAILED to finish during Kids Clothes Sewing Week. I asked Brenna if she thought I could finish everything in time and she was quite emphatic with her NO answer.
