Ravelry: Dollar and a Half Cardigan by Veronik Avery
I have been working on this cardigan off and on again for a couple of months now. I've finally finished the back and am working on one of the front pieces. I decided to make this pattern a little bit more challenging (as if it isn't already) by incorporating another yarn into the cable. This has bogged down my progress quite a bit, as I am having to knit with three separate strands of yarn and I have to make sure they all get wrapped around one another to keep the cable attached to the rest of the fabric. Oh well, I am sure the end result will be worth the extra aggravation, after all, I am the one who decided to do it this way.

I have decided to jump on the bandwagon here, and have started a pair of shorties, or longies. I haven't decided, yet, how long I wish to make them. Maybe they will just be pedal pushers.
I actually started another pair with some yarn my gracious sister gave to me, but I was having a hard time knitting in the round on circulars. So I finished up the socks that were occupying my size 5 DPN's, grabbed a new cake of yarn and got started. When it comes to knitting in the round I think I am just stuck on using DPN's. I LOVE THEM!!!
I am using yarn from 100purewool.com. The first color is Purpura and the second is Portezuelo. I am loving this yarn! It is really soft and fluffy for 100% wool.
I have finally finished a very late Christmas present for my nephew Andrew. Unfortunately I have two more pairs to knit for his two sisters. Oh well, Merry Christmas, Andrew!!
I knitted these socks on size 5 Lantern Moon DPN's, and the yarn is Wick from Knit One, Crochet Two, colorway #467.
I picked up this fabulous new yarn last week at my LYS. It's called Cascade Luna. It was very nice yarn to work with & I just love the depth of the color. I figured last night was a good time to knit it up since I'm waiting on some yarn from mamas on DS. It was a nice break & some instant gratification! The pattern I used is called Traveling Vines.

Jill's friend Katie from EWE NEED IT gave me a quick tutorial on how to dye yarn today. So we braved to venture into the crazy world of yarn dyeing. It was a lot of fun & I'm really happy with the way the yarn turned out. I can't wait to skein it up but it's still drying. But for now, here are some pictures!
