Upclose on Lace Leaf and a New Hat

Free Image Hosting at

I love pairing teal with this green. It's a nice color combo. Pink would also be a good color under this. I love this sweater and would probably wear it every day! Also, I bought way too much yarn for the project, so I knit up a hat.

Here are some of my notes for this project on Ravelry...

Lace Leaf Pullover

I would have finished this a lot sooner, but I put it on a time out after a disaster when I tried to graft the two body pieces together the first time. I had debated on not knitting the sleeve that had the yo's and just make both sleeves the same, but decided against it. I did not make any modifications other than substituting the yarn, which I am very happy with. I bought the button about 3 years ago. I am not usually a button collector, but I fell in love with this one and had to have it. I think I just have a thing for trees. I'm so glad that I finally found the perfect sweater for it.

Bad Blogger!!

I have been awful! It's not for a lack of knitting. I have been knitting a ton. I am almost done with my Lace Leaf Pullover from Loop-d-Loop. I just have to sew up the sleeves. I have already cast on for Hourglass Sweater and have several more planned for the future. I am just so insanely busy that I just don't have time to blog. Also, I have been having internet issues since Friday evening, but that is all taken care of now. I'm going to post pictures soon and also blog with more detail about all the stuff I have going. I am in a mad rush to knit up sweaters for this winter. After living in Florida for almost 4 years, I don't really have any winter clothes. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
