I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Still Working On Pilar

I don't really have any pictures to post so I thought I would just
write and give a little update.

I have been working diligently on my Pilar sweater. I have knit club tonight at Elaine's Yarn Shop so I should get alot done. Unless I visit and shop too much which happens alot. It is such a nice group of girls. I am working on the sleeves and have completed both the front and back. The only problem I might be able to forsee is the decreasing at the eyelets looks kind of like it bubbles up
the front around the chest. Maybe it won't when I get the sleeves on. This is my first raglan.

I also have another pair of Deby's Cotton Candy socks on the needles. This time I am using my superwash handspun. I only have about 1/4 inch complete but the yarn looks like it will knit up very pretty. I love that pattern. It is a nice lace pattern and fit me comfortably. I will only make one change to the pattern. I think I will make the picot edge cuff alot narrower than the pattern calls for only because I am knitting with a little bit thicker wool and I thought it might be kind of hot on my leg (maybe even a little itchy) with the handspun doubled.

Well, that is all I have for now so get out the needles and Knit On!!!
