Waking Up

On Saturday August 16, 2008 My father passed away after his battle with cancer.  His obituary can be read here.  This has been a very sad time for my family and me.  I just can’t even organize it into to words just yet.

Deep breath,  I am going to continue to blog once again.  I know I have promised it before, but I actually have allowed knitting to once again become a part of my life.  I have a FO! It’s a bit past my goal but I finished it.

I really love this sweater alot!  It feels so comfy.  I knit it out of Cascade 220 and Rowan Tapestry.  I used a 32″ size 9 Circular needle, and size 9 DPNs.  It really was a quick easy going knit.  I had a little bit of trouble picking up the pouch stiches, but Cindy from Yellow Dog helped me through it.

I am currently working on Thermal from Knitty.  I have one and a half sleeves completed.  I am in love with this sweater. The waffle stitch is very easy to memorize and the Knitpicks gloss yarn feels so good in my hands.
