So Close and Yet...So Far....

This garter stitch yoke on the Cobblestone Pullover is going to be the end of me.
It is taking forever and a day to finish it.  It would help if I had more time to knit, of course...but that doesn't seem to be happening.  
I have a new super-cool camera, but I haven't totally figured out how to  use it to its best advantage yet, and so pictures are kind of crappy.  Actually, take out kind of, they are just plain craptastic.

Amy and I went to one of our local yarn stores on Good Friday and checked out some yarn I'd give you a link...but the website is currently under construction, and it's kind of pointless).  I bought a pretty pattern,  some Lamb's Pride in a dark green to make a sweater vest, and some really gorgeous pink Malabrigo, ummm, just because.  I am planning a scarf and hat from the MmmmMalabrigo for next winter.

I'm planning a lot of knitting actually:
  • The Elizabeth Bennet Cable Cardigan (the yarn is on back-order from Webs.  I did not stay with the pink after all, but ordered a gorgeous rich brown)
  • The U-Neck Vest also from Stefanie Japel's Fitted Knits--using the Lamb's Pride 
  • The Saratoga Shrug from Dovetail Designs...see link above...
  • A lace shawl?  Am I ready??
  • Socks...
That should keep me busy until the little things that pop up.  I am waiting to find out what gender baby my friend Paul is having this year.  I made him a baby cardigan last year for his little guy Dimaggio...

they are expecting again and, depending, I will have another little project on the horizon.  Although I am not sure how I will top that one...
