On the Needles Friday

I get excited when I finish a project.  I only work on one knitting project at a time.  I can't say the same for quilting.

The Twirl Legwarmers and fingerless mitts are done.
The picture doesn't do the color justice.  It is a little more purple than what you see.  Although the leg warmers look incredibly long, it is more my picture taking (lack of) skills.

On my needles now is a cardigan for me!!!  I have never been successful knitting sweaters that fit well.  I mentioned in a previous post Amy Herzog's Custom Fit program. 
The back is cast on and I have completed about 5 inches.  I am using a Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport on size 4 needles. 
I will be breaking my knitting rule about one project at a time since Camp Loopy will be starting June 1.
I am off to visit Judy's to see what others are working on.

  1. Your sweater yarn is beautiful! And I do like those fingerless mitts. Leg warmers sure would be nice during the winter, too! Just lovely.

  3. I love your sweater yarn - gorgeous color. And I love CustomFit - I've finished two sweaters for myself that fit absolutely perfectly using CustomFit - one for Cardipalooza and the other her Shore Ledges pattern.
