Time Release Sweater (Heather)

After an extremely unproductive weekend of knitting, I finished the back of the Central Park Hoodie, then cast on for the right front last night. I underestimated the speed at which a front could be knitted, and surprised myself by finished the right front today. I have already cast on and finished the ribbing for the second front... despite a shaky start I am right on schedule!

At the risk of being that crazy person who does nothing but photograph her cats, here is a taste of what it is like trying to photograph one's knitting around here:







Yeah, life is hard for knitwear in the sun.

Before I took off for a jam-packed weekend, I managed also to graft the Watermelon Trekking socks!



They fit so nicely. Trekking is certainly not as warm as some of my other socks, which means that I can likely wear these a little longer in the spring. Good stuff!

Man, that was fast. It will be a great sweater.

Hehehe - your hoodie is going to smell like Molly-butt until you get a chance to wash & block it :) However, that will only be a day or so at the rate at which you are knitting... :)

I do like that about Trekking -- a person doesn't need ALL her socks to be sub-zero-ready, after all. Enjoy your watermelon socks right through the spring!

Isn't it nice to be surprised by how fast something goes everyone once in a while? So often it's the reverse.
