The top yarn is hand-dyed alpaca, slated for a Christmas present for the upcoming year. The bottom greeny goodness is for, surprise surprise, me! I am finally making something for myself. I tallied it up, and over the years I have made myself a grand total of one phone cozy and one "feminine mystique" cozy. And that is it. Each of those projects used scrap yarn and took maybe a hour to complete. Well no more! This yarn is going to make the February Lady Sweater, written by Pamela Wynn (who models in the picture too, I think). I loved this cardi on first glance, and I tried to get yarn that closely matched that in the picture.
Right now I'm working on several things, as usual; one, though, the main project, is the biggest thing I've ever knit. It's going to be ginormous. But it's a secret, so I can't divulge any info just yet. I will say that it's a helluva lot of garter stitch! To break up the monotomy of one giant project I've had a string of small side projects, most of which are either washcloths or Christmas '09 gifts. Maybe one day I'll knit something I can show you all!
