my first knitalong

Today I joined my first knitalong for the most beautiful sweater hosted by Julsey at Peony Knits. It is sweater number 20 from the Phildar Tendances Sutomne 05/06 book. I ordered my pattern book and yarn from Knit N Tyme and am in the process of translating while I wait for my yarn.

I also started a pair of Broadstreet fingered mittens for my dad for Christmas. I am knitting them in Blue Sky Alpacas 100% Alpaca Sportweight, the most wonderful yarn in the world. So soft and warm and very light. Yum.


I think I may need to slowly step away from the orange yarn...

One pair of armwarmers knit in Debbie Bliss Cashmerino Aran in dusty pink or something like that for my sister, an uber-quick knit. I didn't know how she would feel about the cables so I put them on the sides in case she thought they were a bit odd. Pretty hard taking a picture of your own arm.
