Good luck with your first sweater and congratulations!
Mittens should knit up a lot more quickly  Wink, or you could just fixed the thumb? Knit a new one and sew it over the old one with hole, be extra warm?
I'm almost through my second armwarmer (picks soon), I can't wait to give these to my mom! They've got pillars of travelling stitches in a sort of spirally column thing.

(It looks a lot better in person, I swear!)
Hooray for finishing things way before the deadline!

ooo i SOOoOoO need this. works in progress (not counting those completely abandoned): socks for BF, sweater for BF (both of these have far-off deadlines, a late November birthday and winter solstice), 2x sweaters for me, a lace scarf whose pattern I'm still writing, a pair of hand-painted lace socks (not 2nd sock syndrome, I lost the "pattern" I was writing, and haven't felt motivated since I found it), patch blanket of my handspun, armsocks for my mom and...and...I'm sure there's more. But these are things I've worked on in RECENT memory. And plan to finish, eventually. But really, I like having a drawer full of WIPs. He he. The socks, though...and the armwarmers...and the sweater for him, and at least one for me...I'd like to finish those. So that brings it down from 8 to...4 projects? Hrm. I could do that.

ohh wow. those are lovely. i often hate colorwork (except fair isle), but those look divine! what kind of yarn did you use? what tension were you getting?

I was hoping there was a knitalong for this! My Icarus has been shelved in favor of some good rainbow socks (Trekking, my fave!) and a boyfriend sweater, but I really would like to pull it back out. Maybe this weekend? I'll try to get progress pics up soon. Pics, anyone?

Like everybody else, I have eight million other things to finish first (esp. with X-mas knitting!), but I'd really like to make this jacket. I like the colors Ryan chose, but I was thinking of something bolder, as I'm more of a bold color person. I was thinking MC Red and CC Black. I really love red and black together, so I thought it'd be good. What colors are you all hoping to use?

oh that's GORGEOUS! you must be so pleased! the buttons are just decorative, aren't they? i'd never even thought of using andean silk, i've been looking for the right yarn before i buy the pattern.

wow, i love your yarn choices! is that uruguayan handpaint from handpaintedyarn.com, btw? i was thinking of buying some yarn from them. my LYS has some of their yarn (which they mark up beyond all belief, btw), and it is SOO soft and wonderful.

I fninished my first one and sent it off to my mum in the spring/early summer, but now i'm working on one for myself! it's sort of a half-clap, scarf width/length, in handpainted alpaca/wool 50/50 from interlacements. i can't wait till i get my digital camera again, then i can post pictures!
