I really have to pay attention! Not at

to tink back 10 rows or so....zooming along again.
Manos del Uruguay yarn.
This is an unusual color choice for me...but
I'm liking it. Lime green, brown, and bits of blue.
Notice the pooling on the ribbing.

Knit a sweater. I feel the urge to knit smaller projects,
mittens, hats, etc. But I want to get at least one sweater done.
Also, to post more notes in Project Pages on Ravelry.
This helps when trying to remember what I did!
and not buy yarn till Rhinebeck, if at all possible.
Ruth is still knitting hats, and said the current
work in progress is the last one for a while.
All so stylish!
The current one is: The pattern is picot hem stranded snowflake hat by Kathleen Taylor. Free. The darker yarn is Dragon Brook Yarns I bought in MA near Martha's. The other yarn is my handspun. Shetland fiber I think.
Ruth's goals for this year, in her own words:
I will finish the sweater I started before the hat marathon. I also have a pair of mittens that need to be finished. New projects? I have some other sweaters I'd like to knit. I can't really think about them now or I'll get distracted from the projects I need to finish.
Funky and fabulous!
how sweet is that! She has one more to make.
This is a pic of sweater she made last year...look
how cute the little boy is wearing it
Martha's 2017 goals in her own words:
My goal this year is to finish up this sweater, make a baby sweater for my knitting colleague, maybe a baby blanket, to increase my sock collection, which is getting old and splitting the heels. And make a few more shawls..... and to keep buying yarn at a minimum since my stash is busting at the seams....!!
Joe and I took a couple days and went to Turning Stone casino.
I found a quiet place to knit, listen to piano music, and have
a nice glass of wine.
productive knitting week !
