SP10 current projects

Right now I am working on an interlac scarf that I recieved from my winter scarf knit kit swap partner on swap bot. I think it is going fairly well. This is the first time I have tried interlac. Due to the colors, I think it will make a nice gift for one of the men in my family at Christmas. Of course, I will have to wait and see how the complete project turns out first.

I am also very excited to be working on some SHORTS. Yes, you heard me right. It is the first pattern I have seen for shorts that I like. I decided to knit the by knitting with my stash because I desperately need to do this. I found some Berroco yarn that I got on sale at a LYS that went out of business quite some time ago. I can't wait to lounge around in them this summer. I have already finished one side and am working on the other.

Oh, here is some sock yarn I picked up when I was in Fredericksburg, Texas visiting my dad.

Well, off to go to some estate sales with mom this morning. I will probably find something to carry on about later today. Can't wait for Savy to come home tomorrow!! I miss her so much!

SHORTS! YOU'RE KNITTING SHORTS?! OMG! Now there's a pattern I'd like to see. And the finished project too. Shorts - amazing. I remember people knitting shorts in the 70's with Red Heart yarn.

OMG look at you go with the interlac! Doing good!

I've been working on a garterlac dishcloth and really like the way it's turning out in variegated yarn.
http://criminyjickets.blogspot.com/2006/07/garterlac-dishcloth.html is where to find the pattern and samples ... maybe if you're not sick of picking up stitches when you're done with that scarf you might try giving that a whirl. :)
