2010 Knit In Progress #1
Berroco Alpaca, Color #6293, 50/50 Alpaca/Wool 
Sublime #607 Book for Sublime Cashmerino  
Needle Size to gauge: Size 4,  Size 32/34
Start Date: Late January 2010
Target Finish Date: Mid-February 2010
Special Note: 

  • I love the look of this coat, rather loose. It would go well with pencil jeans or tights. I love tights.
  • Although the pattern is calling for a specific yarn, Sublime extra fine merino wool, I couldn’t find it at my LYS
  • Hopefully, I can finish this in less than 2-3 weeks. The back side is already done and it only took me 4 days. Yeah, laugh….4 days is really pushing it, especially if it’s being done on my lunch breaks. I’m really making a sweat here.

Knit In Progress #9
Berroco Touche, Color #7965, 50/50 Cotton/Rayon 
Sage Cardigan, design by Lily Go
Needle Size to gauge: Size 4 and 6, for Size Small
Start Date: Early December 2009
Target Finish Date: Mid-January 2010
Special Note: 

  • This project is test-knitted for Lily. I have previously done a test project for Lily Go, and I find her designs appealing.
  • Since crochet isn’t my forte, I will swap with a knit-edge design on the sleeves instead.
  • The details on photo below does not show holes yet (project will have to be blocked to appreciate design); and since yarn color is a bit on the dark side, I lightened up the tone of photo, again, to appreciate the details.

This project is the last of the 2009 projects, even if it had not been finished. I already have a 2010 project cooking in the oven, so to speak.

Somehow, 2009 has been a bit less productive when it came to blogging.

At the close end of 2009, I discovered Face Book! And so, the beginning of a bad addiction started.

Let me assure you, with a built-in guilt from years of being Catholic, I’d never stray too far from a project such as my blog, or my knitting, or anything that is dear to my heart. I’m still productive, but a bit spread-out-thin at the moment.

So to compensate, let me give you a treat for the eyes. Just click here. Trust me, it has something close and related to yarn, providers of yarn at least.
