I am liking this....

.......the Gathered Pullover. This is halfway through the cable panel on the front.


The alpaca is lovely and soft as a fabric, slightly rougher as you are knitting it. I am just praying that the thing will fit when it is finished. Once this panel is finished, I have to separate for the fronts and back so I'll be putting stitches on stitch holders and can try it on.

But, I had a little diversion over the weekend. I got some 2.5mm DPNs from Scandinavian Knitting Design (along with some yarn which I can't show yet!), and using the leftover TOFUtsies that my Sock Wars assassin sent me, I made this little fellow for Becca.




And here he is with big brother Ellie. I still didn't manage to do crochet ears, but somehow I managed to knit a pair in a decent shape this time.

Aww, soo coot!

What is the original design for the elephants? Have I missed something?

Wow, your Gathered Pullover looks so much like mine! It probably feels a lot softer though.

You're also getting distracted by small projects just like me - could we be avoiding the miles and miles or arm-stockinette-in-the-round?

Your little elefanten are very sweet--the ears look good. ;)

I really like the design on this pullover. A very interesting feature.

What? New needles? new yarn? where? where?!
