I took advantage of the sunshine yesterday to take some photos of the projects on my knitting needles.
I also got a quick stealthy photo of Olive before she realized I had a camera in my hands.
Fair Isle Cardigan from the book Meg Swansen's Knitting. I am using Harrisville Shetland. Choosing colors was overwhelming until I decided to go with the palette I saw looking out into my backyard on a rainy autumn day. Despite the fine yarn and needle size (I have over 300 sts on my needles) the knitting goes quickly as I anticipate the color and pattern changes on each row. The only down side to this sort of knitting is that it is definitely NOT social knitting and is barely even TV knitting. Anything on television has to be a companion, not concentrated viewing while I knit this.
All these projects should be enough, but I catch myself wanting to cast on something quick and simple like fingerless mitts, or something completely mindless like a garter stitch hat or shawl. So far I've managed to resist temptation and not spread myself too thin....
