is this thing on?

yeah, yeah. i know i've been remiss in blogging. But life gets busy, y'know?

so without further ado, here's the sweater:

and here's Hush-Hush:

pausing on Hush-Hush in order to wear this sweater for Christmas. Problem is, I don't do ribbing. It always looks wonky and I don't like to do it. So any sugesstions for the bottom and cuffs? I'm not getting "Knitting Beyond the Edge" until Christmas, and I LOVE that book. Too bad I want to wear this before then, har har.

I also knit a man's beanie and gifted it to a friend, and crocheted two potholders. After this sweater, Hush-Hush and flowers need to be rushed! And y'all have to tell me how many flowers I'm getting since I only received two (Laura) and i know Ana and Ceci have a few.

That's all for now! hopefully more sooner than later.

If I may be so bold, i'd love to contribute a flower or two, if you let me know what yarns/colors/pattern people are using.

And I LOVE the way HushHush is coming!!

I'm such an over-achiever.

How about a hem of some sort for the sweater? (You know--knit to desired length, purl row for turning row, knit another 1-2 inches, fold up and sew)

Or finish with a lacy border like the feather and fan stitch?

Plain old garter stitch? Maybe mulitcolored?

Or bind off and add a crocheted border of your own design? (I like that idea the best--you're a good crocheter.)

They're both coming along nicely. If it were me, I think I'd go for a hem. I'm thinking of doing that with the sweater I'm working on now.

I think a hem is a good idea as well. I think the stripes would work best with stitches that don't compete.
