Started another one....

I shouldnt have, but I did. I started yet another project. This is the beginning of my February Lady sweater knit in Rowan Kid Classic. Purple. Not one of my usual colors, but for some reason it really grabbed me. I really like it so far and has a fuzz to it, but not a horrible amount.

No, I havent dropped off the face of the Earth

I havent been overly inspired to blog the last year, but I am getting the urge. I have been seeing all the cool things everyone else is doing with their blogs; the things they are creating and I am starting to thinking I want my own little corner of the cyber world after all.

This is a little something I have been working on for awhile now. It is slow work, but I am past the half way point. I used several references which I dont have at hand at the moment to put together an Andean inspired piece that will become a wall hanging. Right now I am knitting it in a tube and am hoping that one of my lovely knitting friends will help me do a crochet steek to cut it open in the end.

The original plan was to cycle up through my colors once and then repeat, but after much deliberation with some fellow knitterly friends decided to mirror the colors as the pattern is mirrored. I hit a snag though. There is a purple in there that isnt working so I have to rip back 3 colors and am dreading it.
PS the little dog aint so little anymore!
