TTT KAL Update

Just pics :) since it has been crazy busy around here

I am almost done the second sleeve and will hopefully get it blocking before I go to bed tonight :) Stay tuned for the pre block photo and the blocked photo. I am interested to see how much the yarn grows after reading everyones comments. I am hoping to get some room in the sleeves and a little extra length.
Then all that is left is the collar/button bands. I can see the finish line!!

p.s. there has been a deadline extension. Finish time is now May 28th!! I am totally going to make it.

How have your projects been coming along?

Rainy Day Sewing

I did a quick little project while it was raining. It is the Sock Knitting Project bag using the tutorial from Luvinthemommyhood. The pattern is super easy to follow and was cut and sewn up in about 2 hours minus baby time so maybe an hour :)

I absolutely love it and can see many more in my future. Maybe one even sweater sized :)

What are you working on at the moment? Sewing of knitting or both? Come chat with me

TTTKAL - Week 2 update

So my goal for this week was to have the body done on this cardi.

Well that did not happen and for a good reason :) My baby started crawling this week!! We had figured it would happen soon and we are so excited to see her getting her move on. However, this is seriously cramping my knitting style because I am forever chasing her and removing her from the dog beds. I am not complaining though. I now just knit mainly while she is napping during the day or when my husband is home or when she is asleep at night.

Here is a progress shot form last night :)

I have just 4 more front shaping increases and then I will measure and see how much more plain knitting I have until the ribbing :) I love how this is turning out and cannot wait to wear it. It is very warm here now so I might not really get to wear it that much.

This weeks goal: Finish the body and get a at least one arm done

TTA KAL - Week One Update

So the first week of the Tops Tanks and Tees Knit Along is over and I am proud to report that I have made excellent progress on my cardi :) I am just so excited to show you how much I have got done.

The pattern calls for reverse stockinet stitch to be the right side of the fabric but i am just in love with how the stockinet side is looking so I will be using that s the right side. I am still not sure what stitch I will do for the collar and button bands. Still looking at Ravelry projects for ideas :)

Here is what I have done so far:

I am hoping that by next wednesday I will have the body completed on the cardi so I can try it on and show you all how it is looking. This might be wishful thinking on my part lol as I am a somewhat slow knitter.

And I just have to say that this yarn so wonderful to work with! Quince and Co Tern in Columbine.

So I am off to get some more knitting done and have my second cup of coffee for the day :)
