Sometimes, I finish things.

It seems that lately I've been casting on new projects left and right. I actually stopped myself from starting yet another new project because I have too many things on the needles. If I can finish the sparkly socks this week, then I think it will be alright to start a baby cardigan for the fifth person I've learned is expecting. This one's for a boy baby, so I'll have to find a pattern that's a little less precious than the stuff I tend to queue up on Ravelry.

Anyway, the finished stuff. I finally had my picture taken in my Peasy Cardigan, so you all can see it how it came out. I'm pretty pleased with it, especially the sleeve length. I tend to push up the sleeves on all my long-sleeved stuff, so doing these at three-quarters length will be fantastic.

I also finally photographed my Grun is die Hoffnung socks by Stephanie van der Linden. I kind of ad-libbed the cuff, with a picot edging that, sadly, did not make it into the photo. I'm not sure that I'm all that crazy about how it turned out, but I liked the construction of this sock and expect that I'll be playing around with it some more.

In WIPs news, progress continues apace with the Schmidt vest I'm making for my brother-in-law. I'm finding that the Barbara Walker cable I'm using is adding just the right amount of interest to keep me zipping through this stockinette vest.

Well, that looks like about all I've got for this update. Until next time, y'all!


  1. The top detail on the Peasy Cardi is really sweet! Great job!

  2. I love the Peasy! I think it might have to be my next project!
