SOS number1 Lighthouse Keepers Wife

So Ta Dah...Here is the first SOS sweater completed. The Lighthouse Keepers Wife, This guy has been hang out waiting to be finished since way back in 2011!! I was moving along on it until my KP harmony needle popped loose, I set it aside and there it sat for ever! When I picked it back up the first row I was doing the needle popped!!! GRRR but not to be deterred again..I switched out cables and soldiered on!

I really love how this sweater came out. It's soft, comfy and a perfect little layer for cool summer nights! I do think that I may want to make another out of Lion Brand Cotton Ease or some other similar type yarn.

The rest of the details can be found on my Ravelry page! Go on over and check it out!

SOS...Summer of Sweaters

Well here is my real plan for bringing my blog back. If you know me on Ravelry and and ever check out my project page you'll notice that I have a few....a lot....well really A LOT of WIPS or UFOs! I seem to abandon them when something new and shiny catches my eye...or when it's time to knit the sleeves. SO I am deeming this summer the Summer of Sweaters in hopes of saving some of those poor guys hanging out in project bags just yearning to be finished!

Now I am not promising that I will not be distracted by something new and shiny and run off to start that...but I really really hope to get some lingering projects off the needles and have them ready to wear come fall (or this summer for some of my lighter weight projects)

Wish me luck in my endeavors and check back to see how I am doing! (psst I may already have a finished sweater that just needs photographing to be posted!!

Knock Knock..anybody out there?

HMM so well this poor blog has been sitting forever, neglected....I set it up then off and abandoned it for typepad...then I decided I didn't want to pay for typepad anymore, tried to move my stuff here unsuccessfuly and just abandoned that one too. I wanted to go try to direct and lost souls who might still follow that one this way but I don't think I can even do that.

I want to try to revive it a bit..I make NO promises of updating regularly or anything like that, too much pressure. I have enough of that in my everyday life! But I'd like to get back to trying to at least document some of my crafty goodness.....

So if you find me Welcome or welcome back!
