I wasn't going to post, but I had to because the pile of yarn in my lap right now looks remarkably like the yarn you're using for the blanket, except my yarn is actually that color gray. I'm working on a raglan sweater from knitty.com's sweater design article
. It's my third sweater made using it and I'm completely hooked on it. Luckily, I'm friends with someone who operates a small gift shop. He keeps me in yarn, I keep him in sweaters. It's a good deal for someone who always wants something on her needles. Anywho, enough talk. Time for photos. I cast off today and am trying to convince myself to work on all of the boring finishing tasks.
EDIT-I'm new here, so I can only link to pictures for right now. Here are the links:Picture of my almost done sweater.Close-up of a cabling.
The photos were taken at different times, but I wanted to include the second one because it shows the large lattice detail well. There's also a smaller one a couple of inches above it that just has the four center bars cross over. The second lattice was an afterthought...I accidentally made the bottom one too low and I needed something to balance the sweater a little differently. I'm happy enough with how it turned out though.
Now I just need to get back to the boring bits of knitting...weaving in loose threads and blocking. Blech. I have some very pretty cream colored wool that's calling to me, but I can't do anything with that until I finish the grey sweater, otherwise the finishing will never get done.
