Last week I had picked up the yarn for the vest I wanted to make for dear hubby and did some work on it last weekend. It is being made with Comfort from Berroco Yarns. 50% Super Fine Nylon and 50% Super Fine Acrylic with size 8 and 9 Needles. 210 yards per skein. It is a super simple pattern from Carol Sulcoski which was on knitty.com. Here's the link to the pattern :
This is the first time I'm posting a link and hope it works.

On the brighter side, the back of the sweater was completed last night. Even with those aching muscles crying for relief, I still wanted to complete the last two rows and bind off. Just so that I know that progress can be measured.
On Saturday, another day trip to Milwaukee. Visited a yarn shop in Glendale, called "Ruhama's Yarn and Needle". The visit was far too brief, I needed another couple of hours of fiber therapy, but in spite of having decided that I wouldn't buy anything until this project is complete, I gave in to temptation and bought six skeins of yarn. Consolation : it would make a wonderful scarf and may be a pair of fingerless gloves. :-) :-)

As usual, I spent quite sometime knitting in the car and finished my afghan. Since I knew I would be able to complete the afghan, I had taken a baby hoodie pattern and yarn to begin a new project. But, me being me, messed up the beginning, something went wrong and I just couldn't knit in the round. Since I felt the beginning of the withdrawal symptoms, I decided to just do a basketweave blanket with the yarn I had and forget about the hoodie for the time being. Which was completed yesterday. Yaay...me....
Oh, I've got to post the pictures yet. Have to upload from camera... Maybe, tomorrow.

Here's the rest of the yarn which still has to be used. From the looks of it right now, I think it is really going to look gorgeous when completed. The yarn is Ecco 100% Merino Extrafine, Superwash. Needle size is 7.

Come to think of it, I really don't have much of a yarn stash. Over the last four years, I have managed to make a bunch of different projects from all the yarn stash that Mary had given me. Some of the yarn I had bought, the synthetic mix ones from Walmart had been made into scarves which went to the Church. All I have left is the yarn left over from the last two or three projects and the new purchases I've made in the last three months. Hurray for accomplishment.
