This is my new Lady Lovelace sweater! I finished it pretty fast, and it's ready in time to wear for Mother's Day. It's a good day for it too; it's cool, overcast and a bit windy. Predicted high is to be low 60s. Brrrr.

Here's the front:

It went pretty smoothly, and I really enjoyed the project. I skipped the little caplet, not because I didn't like it, but because I didn't really think I'd wear it.

Some views of a needle case I finally got around to making! It's about time too--notice how many missing needles I have. Sigh. The pattern for the case came from Loulabelle:

Here's my monthly update. I just finished this matched two bag set of acorn bags. One is for my new Asus, and the other is with leftovers from stiching the bag to get the right size. I think they're pretty nice looking.

Waves Cupholder

An impromptu Valentine's gift for my husband. It will usually reside on a venti size--this grande is clearly an aberration.

It's my own pattern, inspired by Slingshot from I used Lambspride wool and #10 dpns.

Luna Moth Shawl

I started this project a couple of days ago, and it went well until the last few rows of the second body chart (so I know the pattern's right). I ended up with an extra stitch on the left side. I counted and counted and compared and couldn't figure it out. Did I put it down to be frogged on the morrow? No, that would have been sensible. I knit four more rows. I don't know why. Well, I started the frogging yesterday, and I still haven't found the problem. I will today, and I'm liking the pattern. The yarn isn't as grass green as I was hoping, but neither is it as grey green as it is showing in this picture.

I just wanted to add that for anyone wanting to do the Hemlock Ring Blanket, there is a pattern complete with errata here: I am planning on making more, and I'm looking forward to not wrestling with a mistake in the pattern.

The Jellyfish Has Landed

Well, it's off the needles and blocking. I still can't believe I made it. It really came out nice. I skipped the last few rows, as I couldn't take my husband asking how the "car cover" was going. Sigh. I also cheated and did the crochet cast off, rather than the complicated knitted one. I so hate knitting several stitches in one stitch--that's why no matter how much I like nupps, I don't do projects with them.

It came out to be just over 4' wide--plenty big for a lap blanket.

Also, here's a pic of the Shetland triangle kerchief in action:
