my newest FO!

(or "finished object" for those who don't remember useless abbreviations):

I also want to show you a detail so you can see how lovely the yarn looks:

The pattern is called "The Perfect Sweater" and is located for free on www.masondixonknitting.com. I had started it way some time back and gotten distracted. It was a very quick and easy knit (and for those who are just starting off knitting and want a simple sweater pattern, this is the one - lots of variations in it).

Otherwise, knitting has been up and down. I started a set of boxer shorts but they turned out way too wide and too short at the same time. So, they are in the "unwind" pile to make a couple of summery Ts. Right now am working on a large handbag but have been fighting with it as the yarn I'm using is the wrong gauge. Have finally figured it out.

And of course, the fact that lots of knitting is done in front of LOCI reruns probably does not help with the concentration factor! ;)

Great sweater! I love the yarn... And I COMPLETELY understand the concentration problem. ; )

Well, I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who drops many... ahem, a few... stitches at dramatic moments! ;-)

The yarn is truly amazing. I wish in a way I had never gotten addicted to Fleece Artist as it is quite expensive... but worth it, really.
