Nuttin' but Knittin'

The Pretty Thing Cowl is finished. After a couple of errors the first time, I frogged it and started it over again on Wednesday night and finished it Saturday. No errors this time! It is lovely and soft and I think will be very warm. It snuggles nicely against my neck, but it a bit long for me so the top folds down.

Not a design feature I am sure, however I actually prefer it that way! Now I want to make more! I think they would be lovely gifts for anyone. Cowls keep your neck nice and warm whilst not being as bulky as a scarf. This pattern is somewhat dressy with the lace so I might try a different one. I have several faved on Ravelry that I might try!

I started the Drops sweater for baby Lucy last evening watching the Yankees - Angels game. Had I stayed up till the end ( it got over about 2:00 a.m. here) I probably would have finished the sleeve and made headway on the body!! But I gave up and went to bed whilst it was still ties 2 - 2! The colours are lovely, nice and bright and it is knitting up pretty fast, so I may reach my goal of finishing this by the end of next week!

Then it is on to felted slippers. I have updated my list of who wants/needs new ones and I have some really pretty bright colours to knit with, so that it next on my list. Once I get going on slippers I can whip them up pretty quickly. Not as quickly as Sheri, who can do one in an evening so it takes two evenings for a pair! I usually take four evenings per pair. But I consider that to be a pretty good pace!
