The sweater is almost done. You know what sweater I'm talking about. I absolutely love it. But, I've just about run out of yarn, and it's not quite done yet. Since realizing I am going to run out of yarn, I have contacted 4 different online vendors to purchase one more ball. They all have websites that say they sell this yarn (Lana Grossa Due Chine), and they're all out of stock in the color I need (and most other colors as well). I've posted on Knitters Review. It's my last hope...
I'm in quite a pickle here, because 1) I wanted to sell this pattern, so I now have to find a new different yarn that will work at approximately the same guage and knit another sweater in that yarn before finalizing the pattern and putting it up for sale, and 2) I really really love this sweater and really really want to finish it and wear it!!!
[Added later, but before posting]
OK, so I picked a new yarn and I'm excited to knit another sweater. I really love the pattern, so it will be awesome to have 2 sweaters in different yarns and colors. Plus this way I will follow my pattern directions (once I write them up in a bit more orderly fashion) and see if my directions are good or not.
In other news, I'm knitting an entrelac scarf with my handspun soy silk, which I will post a picture of soon. I started another holiday scarf, but put it on hold. I figured out what pattern to use for my nephew's baby blanket. I haven't spun anything in almost 3 weeks... and Mojo will be 4 months old tomorrow, so I'll post more pictures of him then too!
Also, my mom loves her new socks.
(You see where I get my love of big dogs.)
And I did say I'd post pictures of Siena modeling my latest scarf, the only holiday knitting I've completed so far...
Doesn't she remind you of Greta Garbo?
She's definitely got flare...
