No Quilting To Show...

I have been working on a small quilt project,
but can't show it quite yet.
It's a secret and one I hope to have finished soon!

I do have a complete knitting finish though!
My very first sweater is completed....
buttons and all...

I wanted some fancy ceramic buttons,
but saw these plain brushed silver buttons
and knew they would look nice on the sweater.

It's finished just in time for cooler weather!

I ordered yarn to knit another sweater and am hoping
this next sweater is a bit easier and won't take
a year and a half!

Another sock is finished and it's mate is half done.

 This yarn is wonderful to knit.

I need to knit the short row heel and then will finish the foot.

Hopefully soon I will have more quiltiness to show here!

Please visit Patchwork Times to see other knitted creations.

Happy Friday!

I still can't believe you picked that pattern for your first sweater! It's beautiful. And you may have discovered that ceramic buttons are too heavy for a sweater. Just sayin' ... from experience.

Your sweater is beautiful! You picked a very advanced pattern for your first sweater. Simpler ones with one yarn don't take near as long. :)

Wow - nothing like diving in the deep end, eh Ramona? this sweater turned out very beautiful - I love the colors! Those pretty socks go very well with it too!

Your sweater is absolutely beautiful. That is a major accomplishment. I'm just reading all the OTN postings that I missed with my computer problems, so this is way late, I know. I don't want to miss anything, right? lol Great looking socks too - my favorite colors there.
