To Prove That There Is Knitting Content

Finally finished the back of my St Enda sweater! If I counted all of the tinking and reknitting, this would have been the 75th back I've knit!  It looks a little wonky because it's unblocked, I'll wait until I have the back and sleeves done to block it....Estimated time of blocking=early spring 2015. Gosh I hope the Mayan Calendar is wrong!

If it's not wonky enough for you already, I've included an out of focus, not centered close up version for your enjoyment!
 Alice Starmore! I love you!

What are YOU knitting?

That's going to be soooo beautiful. I'm still plugging away at a pair of basic ribbed socks (not exciting at all).

St. Enda looks amazing! I'm knitting a off-white Citron shawl for my niece and it looks very nice so far. I love the pattern.

What excellent knitting!!!!!! I hope this sweater is for you.

I am knitting a shawl/sweater/socks/scarf at the moment. Adult ADD! :O)

Love those cables! They look really great in silver.

I just finished the Anjeli shawlette and am now crocheting the Mist stole. Good stuff, Maynard. :)

It looks amazing so far, even unblocked! It's fun to try to follow the cables around and see where they lead! I'm still working on my Heilo mittens, and am planning on digging my kauni cardigan out of the wip pile...but am going to have to rip a few rows in order to get going on that one again...

I just got that aran knitting book and drool over several... wondering if and when I will ever get around to actually making one. So huge kudos to you! Even if it takes you a while, you're actually working on it!

Pretty much snowpocalypse around here too...

4. WHAT THE..What's with the new "listen to the numbers" verification???? Don't they know that some of us don't hear as well as we used to?!

Gorgeous, gorgeous knitting. I'm working on a VERY plain vest. I have Alice Starmore's "Fishermen's Sweaters" and drool over the patterns, but think I'd die of heat stroke if I tried to wear one. Loving this perimenopause stuff . . . NOT!
