Here's Reilly modeling his newly completed sweater. I got this off of Rebecca Magazines' website and it's been sitting in my UFO pile since April. All I had to do was seam and weave. This was my first attempt at insartia and I'm pretty pleased with the outcome. Finally I was inspired to finish it Tuesday night.

Progress has been made. Cabaret is almost done! All I need to do is weave in the million ends and tighten up the neckline. Broadripple is half done. And look, they almost match! It seems that all I currently want to do is red.

Oh, you know, like a whole week!?! It really feels like it was just last Saturday. They say time flies when you're having fun, but that's only a half truth. I think part of my week was spent shopping and exploring the town and the other part was fighting with a toddler that doesn't want to take naps anymore.

So, here is my latest endeavor. It's Cabaret Raglan from Interweave Summer '04. Last night I was playing around with various yarns for different patterns. After I saw how beautiful this yarn (Luzerne from Rodel) worked up, I knew I had a winner. Although the pattern calls for a lightweight cotton tape, I wanted something a bit heavier for the winter. Well, before I knew it, I had casted on and was going full speed. I've had to adjust the hem to prevent curling, but I'm pleased with how it looks.

I can't believe we're at this point in the year already. Three quarters of the year is gone and fall is almost here. Goody, fall is my favorite season. And I actually get to experience seasons again. Living in Ga. for the past three years really made me miss seasons. I get to wear all of my sweaters!

1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high-end/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you?
Went to the local Fall Bazaar this morning. Sadly I left emptyhanded. I was expecting good deals, but everything I liked was over two hundred dollars. And I didn't feel like paying twenty for a tiny piece of parmigiano reggiano. I think that they jack up the prices for these things, thinking that we don't know any better and to cover exchange rates. Plus, I thought that artisans were to be the feature, but mostly it was representatives from larger stores and companies. Heck, they even had reps from cell phone companies! Oh, well, no big loss.

Here's my knitting fan club- Ling Ling and Cozette. They just love it when mommy forgets to put a ball of yarn away. I don't even know how many times I've awaken to yarn all over the house. But, they're my babies and I love them no matter what they do to my yarn.
