Some Long-Term Projects

It's been awhile since I've posted...some family things going on, but now I am back in the groove. I finished the Talia vest for my daughter and it is beautiful...however, the buttons that I ordered online seem to be lost in the ether, so we will wait a few days and figure something else out if they don't arrive. I'll post pictures once it is complete, on my beautiful daughter!

I next started the Men's Windowpane Vest for my husband, from the Winter 2008/2009 Knit Simple.
It involves some intarsia, in little groups of a single stitch every 18 stitches. It is slow going (on #5 needles, DK weight yarn) but I think it is going to be lovely when it is done.

My other big project is the Cable Comfort Throw, which I'm doing in Noro Transitions.
I am loving this project and I'm so happy I splurged for the Addi #11 circular needles--it makes such a difference to have this yarn, which has about 5 different textures in it, go flying over those needles.

More to come!
