Next!

I didn't feel so bad after I read Sandi Wiseheart's of Interweave's Knitting Daily emails confess that she has 19 projects on needles! I counted the other day and I had 8. I was shocked. Just a short time ago I was a knitter that started and finished one knit at a time. Now look what's happened to me! So since Sandi has made me feel so much better I did this:

Yep, that's the extent of my swatching despite what I've been taught. Got the gauge now it's time to press on. I even bought the yarn the pattern calls for, Jaeger Extra Fine Merino DK and from one of my favorite places that I linked in my previous post, Jimmy Beans Wool. I love this color! The pattern is Pearl Buck Swing Jacket by Kate Gilbert from Interweave Knits, Winter 2005.

I have been itching to knit this pattern ever since I saw it on A Bluestocking Knits (she hosted a mini-KAL for it) and I also have the yarn and pattern...just trying to decide whether to make this or a Karabella cabled cardigan (for which I also have the yarn and pattern...). This one might have to be the winner for me too!

Why have you not been showing up on my bloglines? I love the PBSJ, I love Jaeger merino DK too. It's going to be really nice.
