I got a box in the mail!

And it was full of pretty pink things thanks to my Color Swap Pal!! She sent me pretty pink Rowan wool, a pink washclothe, a calender, crochet thread and lots of other beautiful pink things. I can't say thank you enough!

I'm still here!

I know I havent posted in awhile; I've been so busy over the holidays etc. I have so many things to tell you. First off, I got a box from my Secret Pal over the holidays! I didnt get to take a pic of it b4 I went thru it and unwrapped everything. She sent some really great holiday yarns, a coffee mug, candies, and holiday cd's! Thanks Secret Pal!

I've also been knitting up a storm. I started the Feb. Lady Sweater @ the begining of the month. I'm calling it my early-january sweater over on Ravelry. Look up the pattern on Ravelry and you'll see how beautiful it is.

Here is a pic of it after I finished the yoke. You cant see it very well in this pic but I've completed two repeats of the lace. I can't believe I'm knitting lace. I'm using a crap load of stitches markers b/c I'm so bad @ counting but other than that it's coming along just fine. A little slow but other than that its great. I'm using Lion Brand Cotton-ease in the color Azalea on size US8 needles.

Also flying off the needles is this tea towel I knit out reg kitchen cotton.

I've decided to just give up on the button band for the CPH and just sew in a zipper. Yes, I let a button band beat me. So sad. I just want to be done with this sweater so I can wear it! If I wait too much longer it wont be cold enough for a wool sweater.

So...what are YOU knitting?
