Mostly Sweaters

Most of us are working on sweaters this week. They are tiny enough to knit up quickly but still interesting enough to keep one from getting bored.
My Sunnyside Cardigan started to look like a sweater tonight. A few more inches to go on the body and then I'll work the sleeves. 
 Dorah's baby hoodie started out with just a hood but by the time we finished tonight she was...
 this far along. You can see the raglan shaping and the button band front.
 Carole's Sunnyside Cardigan has only an inch or so to go before she binds off the body stitches and then it's on to the sleeves. The cables are looking nice!
 Elaine made progress on this little shrug sweater today.
 It's going to be so cute in this pretty rose colored yarn.
 Kathleen and Cinzia conferred on the Elizabeth Zimmermann pattern for the Baby Surprise Jacket. Then Cinzia spent the better part of the next half hour trying to untangle the ball of yarn so she could knit. Sometimes a center pull skein is just a big knot!
See that pretty scarf Cinzia is wearing?
 Her friend made it for her birthday last week. Such a pretty lace edge!
 Kathleen came armed with a big inventory of her latest accomplishments. That's the great thing about baby clothes, they are small enough to crank out a bunch in a week, if you have the time to knit.
And this cute little Baby Sophisticate shawl colored sweater was a hit with it's little square buttons. Kathleen ran out of light blue yarn to finish the collar so on to Plan B and it looks great.
Kathleen started her Baby Surprise Jacket with a pretty variegated yarn. She went home with 3 more skeins of yarn to start a striped one for next week.
And Elaine finished her Seed Stitch edged cardigan with lime green buttons. So cute!
And lastly Barbara accomplished a lot of knitting during the week. This lovely Feather and Fan blanket is from the Plymouth Eight Hour Baby Blankets book. The patterns in the book call for using two strands of worsted weight yarn but she is adjusting the pattern for a single strand of worsted.
Another week of beautiful knitting! Now it's back to the needles so I can show you something new next week. Have a great week and keep those needles clicking!
