I think I've knit 3 or 4 sweaters so far which I haven't shown you.  And I've been working on several quilts.  I think I need 32 hours in the day....and I have 1 more sweater that is almost done, plus the coolest pair of gloves that I just have to figure out fingers on.

This one was a quick knit.  And different.  And it is so totally comfortable and perfect.

It was a test knit for Thea at Baby Cocktails....the cable is cool, the fit is perfect.  It's knit in 2 pieces (front and back) and then seamed together.

I used yarn out of my stash - Cascade 220 Heathers.  I've had this yarn for a few years now and didn't know what to make with it.

Pattern - Drambuie by Baby Cocktails
Yarn - Cascade 220 Heathers
Size - 38 on the bottom, 36 on the top (with this yarn, I should have gone with 36 the whole way through, but it's all good)

I'm also madly working on cleaning up the house - 1/2 of my sewing room is cleaned, the basement stairwell has been cleaned, painted and decorated, and the laundry room is half painted and organized...oh!  and we've also been working on the new barn and pastures every weekend that we can - but I'm ready to revolt on that as the house is really suffering.....  I'll show you those projects shortly, as I have to wait for Todd to hang shelves - the stud finder and I could not get along the one day.....

Have a blessed weekend!!!
