WIP Wednesday!

I've mainly been knitting on this! I want to wear it at SAFF, along with my Tilted Duster.
Slow but sure!
I have about 3" left of stockinette, then the 3" of cable/rib pattern. I am making full length sleeves instead of 3/4 length. Then onto finishing the rest of the body, which I need about 4-5" or so. Then the other sleeve and button band.

What's this??? huh?? here??
Special Olympics Scarf
A scarf that's not lengthwise! Its for the Special Olympics Scarf Project. I'm getting my crochet on! It's going pretty good, now if I can correctly count the rows I'll be all set. I really detest knitting with this yarn but crocheting isn't so bad. The middle white section looks smaller than I thought it was...hmmm oh well. I'll probably crochet 2 of them. I think it's a good way to learn some new stitches, plus make some kids happy. Go for it, knit or crochet one yourself. Just make sure to use only the yarn and colors they request though.

Well, that's it, off to work on the sweater!

The sweater is going to look great, and I love the scarf - I'm having the WORST time finding the Delft Blue color - neither Michael's nor AC Moore near me had it. If JoAnn fails me, I'm going to have to go further afield!

Wow, that sweater is really growing!! Go you, I'm sure you'll have it done in time. I'm in a big push to get my Feb. Lady off the needles too.

I gotta hit the box craft stores for more delft blue and white. I love me some WINTER olympics and a certain other charity scarf project that's all the rage right now just doesn't flip my cookie.

Your sweater is looking great!

Good job on your crocheting; you are a good woman to subject yourself to that yarn for such a good cause.

I must say I am very happy to see your crocheted project! It's a beautiful stitch.I have been wanting to do a Ripple scarf or something.
