The Last Christmas Gift

Today I finished blocking the Clapotis I have been working on for my grandmother:

I love it. LOVE IT.  I want to wear it!  Obviously, I'm going to have to make myself a snuggly wrap/shawl immediately.  Bonus, I have about 5 skeins leftover from this project (Knit Picks skeins are only 50 grams – super small, really), which means that I am going to make a Feather and Fan cardigan for Hazel.  
Actually, I am finally working on a project for myself, which is called the February Lady Sweater.  I have had the yarn and buttons for this sweater since JANUARY.  That's almost an entire year ago.  This will be the third project I have ever made for myself, following a phone cover and a tampon case.  Yeah, I know – both of those things are tiny and they suck.  I have really pretty yarn, sort of a slightly heathery hunter green, with dark wooden buttons.  Now that I am done with Christmas knitting, I just have this project and a blanket for Hazel on the needles.  Wow.  I haven't been working on only two things since probably last year!  LOL
Anyway, as the school year winds down for me (only 1.5 finals and one more week of homework to go), I hope to get this finished rather quickly.  I have never made an adult-sized sweater, so I wonder how it will progress.  If the lace pattern (oh yeah – this is also lace!!  another new frontier!!!) agrees with me, then I'm going to make Hazel a matching version as well.
