Rainy Day

So in the works are 2 scarves,(1 with recycled silk saris, the other an enterlac pattern of yarns left from previous projects) a pair of socks 2 at a time, magic loop method and the Rona Sweater.  I got to work on the 2 scarves at work (shush, don't tell) between customers and I have been working on the socks and sweater at night when I get home.  I do not have much to show for the sweater that I have been working on for about a month and the socks just never seem to get any where, but I will keep you all posted if not for you, but for me to track my progress.  I will go now, Karen has made a lovely chicken for dinner and it smells SOOOO good. I have to go eat now!

Rona Sweater

Started my Rona sweater by Alice Starmore. I have the bottom band done and am starting on the body of the swater, I have finished the increases and now I get to start all the fun patters in fair isle. I really have looked forward to this for some time and I sincerely hope that this will not take more than 1 year to complete. I started it on September 27, my birthday and hope to finish it on the same date one year later. I know, it is a lofty goal but it is a goal none the less. I will be checking in at least once a week t let you know my progress and to keep track for myself as well. Photos will be included. I have to admit it is not my only project going, I have 2 scarfs, a pair of socks and a felted bag going as well... My mother always said that idle hands were the devils workshop, no devil here!!
