2 balls knit. . . . . 13 more to go!

It took two balls exactly to knit the left side of Woodland. The little string of yarn you see still attached is all that was left of the second ball!

I LOVE knitting with this yarn, so much so that I just can't bear to pick up Soleil :-( I really should, I mean she's just about finished. Only have a little part of the neck to do then the two front parts.


But as I've mentioned before, if I'm not enjoying knitting something then I won't knit it! I'll get to it eventually, I know I will. But in the meantime I'll knit what makes me happy. . . . and that would be Debbie Bliss Cathay.

I'm off to start the back, and although it's just rib, rib and more rib, I know I'll still enjoy it :-)

Wow, that must be some crazy good yarn if you're enjoying ribbing that much. It looks gorgeous!

Wise women! I know your project is just hibernating but I think I'm going to follow your lead and frog a project that I'm not enjoying because the yarn looks frugly. This sweater is going to be just lovely. I looked at that pattern booklet and it has several nice designs. I sometimes find that pattern booklets don't inspire me until I see them in person or the patterns being knit and then it clicks. I love the cable detailing on this sweater, for example.

Yummy yarn makes all the difference, doesn't it? I'm sure Soleil doesn't mind :)

Looks great! I totally agree - knit what you feel like working on, and it will go much more quickly! You'll pick the other project up later when you feel like it.

Oh I love that cable up the front edge - neat, neat, neat!

It's knitting up so beautifully - I have used Cathay & it's gorgeous. Great choice of yarn & pattern.

Oh I miss Debbie Bliss yarns! What a beautiful job you are doing on this sweater. Such a great color for the upcoming warmer months, too.

You'll get back to Soleil when the time is right. Enjoy what you are working on now.

I have the same book and that is one pattern that I really liked too. Yours looks so nice in that color too.

that looks like a fun knit--just enough pattern to keep you awake, but simple enough to be relaxing.
