FO: Holiday Sweater

Seems like I'm only updating once a month or so.  Sorry about that.  Life is pretty crazy around here. 

Project Details:
Started on September 15th and finished on October 26th.  I used Cascade wool singles (we will have to see how the yarn does).  Size 8 needles so it did go quickly.  Can't wait to put Zooey in it.

FO Adult Tea Leaves Sweater

Project Details: Started on July 13th and finished on September 14th.  Took me too long, but with a toddler and kittens I'm amazed I finished.  Size 7 needles and delicious Hedgehog single fiber.  Colorway is Hunter and took 4 skeins (1004 yards).  This need a nice bath and blocking, but I think it will be a great holiday sweater!

FO Elf

Project Details:  Super fast knit.  Took one skein of Classic Elite Yarns Toboggan.  Which feels great and I hope wears well.  I always wanted an elf hat.  One day to knit.  Size 10.5 needles and just what the doctor ordered.

In the past 2 weeks I have started 2 sweaters and have frogged both.  Either because I hated the yarn and pattern together or because the pattern was written so poorly there was no way for me to make forward progress.  I have another one lined up to start tomorrow.  Let's see how it goes!  Wish me luck.

FO Eucador Sweater!

Project Details:  Started on March 23rd 2013 and finished on June 26th 2014.  Yes a long time, but it was sitting untouched for a while.  I do love how it drapes and fits now that it is finished and blocked, but fingering weight yarn just takes forever!  Took 3 skeins of sock yarn on size 7 needles.  I made the sleeves 3/4 length instead of long or short.  I like the end product but I would never do this again.  Painful!
