Sweater Progress

by Kelly

Freezing cold weather makes it hard to photograph the sunrise. Using a camera with gloves on is difficult, but not wearing the gloves means fingers that aren't able to push tiny buttons. On the other hand, I've finally realized why I've been able to get so many good pictures this year - no clouds. Usually winter means grey and cloudy skies most of the time, but obviously not during a drought.

In other news, the sweater project continues:

This is the front panel of the sweater, and it's about halfway done. Once I finish this panel, I just need to knit the sleeves, seam the thing together and knit the neck. Okay, so there is quite a bit still to do. A little reality check there. It seems like I should be further along, since I've put so much time in on this.

It's not difficult, just time consuming. It takes over five minutes just to knit one row from start to finish. But I'm not discouraged. Besides, I need to empty this plastic zipper bag all the sweater stuff came in so I can use it for storage:)

Pirate Bookmark

by Kelly

Between working on other projects, I've been doing some cleaning around here. While I was dusting bookshelves (something I rarely do, since usually they're too full of books to be really dusty), I stumbled across something I made ages ago.

Mind you, I found this when I was taking books off the shelf. It fell on the floor and I have no idea what book it was in or what page it was marking. Oops.
