    Default Janel's (CamelNoodle) progress thread

    I just started knitting in January. I've tried various times before, but never got passed the knit stitch. This time I was determined to make it.

    I took classes at my LYS. The first one was 2 needle mittens. I made a pair for me, and a pair for my 2 year old. I'll post a picture sometime.

    The second project was a sweater for a friend of mine. Her baby was born just this last Monday (3/26). It's a top down sweater. It really was like knitting the two needle mittens, but with two thumbs (the sleeves). It took one skein of yarn, so it was inexpensive. My friend was so happy to receive it, as she had a family friend that just passed that knit her son a sweater and she was sad her daughter wouldn't get a hand-knit sweater.



    The third project is a cable hat, for DH. Picture to follow.

    Fourth project is a sweater (class again a LYS). It's a bottom up sweater in the round. I'm almost to the armpits. It's taking alot of time. The patter can be found at http://www.masondixonknitting.com It's called the "Perfect Sweater". The pattern is free. I did the picot hem in contrasting color. It's nice. I hope I finish it in time to still wear it this year!

    The fifth project is the Booga Bag knit along. I just felted it tonight. I like how it turned out. It's smaller than I thought it would be.

    wow, nice job!!! TFS!
    There is something about words. In expert hands, manipulated deftly, they take you prisoner. Wind themselves around your limbs like spider silk, and when you are so enthralled you cannot move, they pierce your skin, enter your blood, numb your thoughts. Inside you they work their magic. ~ The Thirteenth Tale

    Great job. That sweater is adorable! I haven't done the booga bag yet, but may do it one day.

    Well, I'm back to work today, after being on personal leave after my son was stillborn. There goes the end of getting so much knitting done!

    Janel, i often bring my knitting with me to work and do it during lunch break. Even if I go out for lunch I take it with me. I bring it to the docs office...i take it anywhere. I always try to find either a small project or a mindless project thats easy to do in small amounts of time.

    I absolutely LOVE that little sweater! Its so cute! Very girly with the flower buttons And the colors in the bag felted up nicely!

    How has your first day back been so far? (I know its early) Hope it goes well.

    Here's my sweater that I am working on:



    Since this picture, I've attached the shoulders and started on one arm.

    Can you see the cat shadow on the sweater? She was so interested in the sweater. As soon as I was done taking this picture, my cat jumped on my sweater and laid down.

    That sounds like a great project. The only problem is that we have 3 cats. I'd have to make at least 2 cat beds.

    Here is my Booga Bag #2



    Noro Kureyon , in color 194. This wasn't my first choice for colors, as I'm not sure how the brown/black will look, and I'm finding the red and green next to each other is too Christmas-y. I was desperate for self striping yarn, as I am knitting this for my sister's b-day present and her birthday is April 28th.

    This yarn is the one recommended in the pattern. I think it will work great for a felted project, but to me, it is too "rustic" for a sweater or something. It's not slick and there is a wide variety of thicknesses to the strand.
