Knitting Friday

This week I made a little progress on my Sweater.

I was busy working on another non-sewing, non-knitting
project that I can't show right now and this took up
A lot of my free time!

Here is what I was able to get knitted this week:


I have 2 1/2 more rows to knit and the back is done.
 

This yarn is just so much fun to knit!


Here is the sweater pattern I am using.


I did have to start a mindless, take with me knitting project.
There were several times this past week that required my 
sitting in a doctor's office or somewhere else, waiting....

SO.....


Out came a skein of the Kroy sock yarn and another
a pair of socks was started.
I can't wait until I get to that pop of orange and yellow
in the skein!
 

On another blog (sorry... can't remember which one!),
 a knitter had randomly purled rows in the
plain vanilla sock.  I decided to try this and am liking how
it looks!

Please visit Patchwork Times to see what others are knitting.

Happy Friday!

Oh that sweater! It is amazing and gorgeous. I think this might scare me as much as cables do. :)
LOVE the sock yarn and the purl row sure changes up the plain socks.

You are really making great progress! It's going to be beautiful. Nice socks, too; hurrah for "mindless" knitting!

Your sweater is beautiful. Not a beginner pattern I'm sure. I also love the color of yarn of your new socks. I am going to have to check out that yarn one of these days.

Wow - love the effect of the design and colors in yoru sweater - nice job! I love Kroy sock yarn - I'm going to have to try that colorway. I now have several colors in my stash waiting to be knitted up :) Cute pattern with the random purl stitch.
