Plugging Along

In spite of my injured finger, I've been able to knit and I've been plugging along at several projects.

First is my Harvest Moon which I started earlier this summer - it went on stall for a few weeks as I needed automatic pilot knitting and I was at the part where I had to do the pockets. I found a few hours and cranked out the pockets and am now back on the autopilot knitting for the sleeves. I really love how this pattern is written.

Next is too is in holding pattern until I free up some long circulars to make the sleeves.

Here is the Elizabeth I'm making for my mom...she keeps asking about its status. This is more boring stockinette with a slipped rib stitch panel. I've actually gotten much further on it. It is knit from sleeve to sleeve and then you knit a collar and attach it. I'm considering changing that to attach the collar while knitting it like you do for the Mondo Cable Cardi. I just hate doing mattress stitch and I think the process of attaching as you go might work.

Lastly, I have to share this yummy yarn I got from Kimberly when she was destashing - Ella Rae Lace Merino - 3 gorgeous skeins waiting to be made into something.
