I haven't posted in awhile

I know I haven't posted in awhile - I do have a couple of finished projects I need to take pictures so I can post them. I really haven't done much knitting because my father passed away April 21st. I finished his sweater in March and he wore it constantly, however I never got a picture of him in it which saddens me. He was only 61 years old, I do feel fortunate to have spent the last year and a half with him. I will post what I have soon.

I've finished Dad's Green Sweater last night - It turned out really nice.... although it could have been alittle bigger it's not as roomy as I thought it would be.

I started Anna's Very Berry T-shirt you can see it here:

After researching this I'm probablly going to make it a couple of inches longer in the lace and chest area I'm using Plymouth Platinum yarn in a peach color it's really stretchy.
I have to have this one done by 3/20/09 and I just started. thank goodness she's only 6 and it's a short sleeve sweater

Pictures to come

Progress report

2/16/09 - I started Dad's sweater on 2/4/09 I've got the back done and 3/4 of one sleeve complete.... I'm hoping to finish everthing this week before it starts to get warm... hopefully he'll be able to wear it a couple times before spring.
- Yarn - Valley Yarns Northhampton in Green (heather) (I bought 8 skeins hopefully this will be enough)
- needles - size 7 with size 5 for ribbed edges

Blue Juliet - I've sewn in all the loose ends I just need to block it and add the clasps I might need to tighten the cap sleeves not sure yet will know after it's blocked with the clasps added.

Next on the needles - Anna's birthday present - not sure what I'm going to make yet need to decide and buy yarn......she likes pink but I might make a different color though, she has lots of pink already....
