spring sweater progress


I honestly was hoping to be finished with this sweater by this week's yarn along post, unfortunately, not the case.  This past weekend we spent a good bit of time with friends tapping trees and boiling sap (and eating a lot of pancakes!).  It was a lot of fun, but not the best place for me to be working on my knitting!

I am done with the front and back and one sleeve.  I just need to finish this one sleeve and then knit the hood.  It is so simple, as far as knitting goes.  Not the most adventurous pattern, but I love how it is coming out.  And I know that this color is going to look amazing on my daughter.  Now I am thinking about a non-hooded one I could make for my son...but that probably won't be until the fall!

I am still reading Your Beautiful Purpose: Discovering and Enjoying What God Can Do Through You.  It has been a really interesting read so far.  Being able to humble oneself enough to take God's direction, and not let your own hopes and dreams get in the way of His plan; it is a lot to take in!  Watch for a full review this weekend!

Looking forward to seeing all the other projects others are working on!

Joining in with Ginny Tami and Nicole

  3. Love the blue! I wish I had the talent to sew or knit, or do anything creative. I just don't.

  4. That is a lovely colour.
    Tapping trees and boiling sap sounds like great fun, but I guess it's best to keep knitting away from such stickiness.

  5. Tapping trees for sap!?! That's so cool but probably not a good activity to engage in with yarn in tow. :-D You're quickly approaching the finish line on this now. I hope the rest goes quickly.
