On The Needles

I was so excited to start my socks for Judy L's Pooling Sock Yarn Challenge.
I'm so disappointed.....
there is little to no pooling.
I LOVE this yarn though!
Maybe it will pool after the heel.
I should knit all day to find out for sure. 

I made myself sew the zipper in Ernie's vest.
He is happy he can wear it now. 
I'm happy is finished!
He teased about wearing it to work.
Silly Man! That's NOT gonna happen!
Now he wants one with sleeves!
Sweetie, we call that a sweater
and no, that's not gonna happen either.

Unless I can make him a sweater like this one. 
The Flower Sweater is sooooo close to being done.
All it needs is buttons.
I'm making a special trip to town today to shop for buttons.
She tried it on the other night and is trilled.
You'll have to wait to see the whole thing until she can model it for you.
It will be worth the wait. 
This sweater is so darn cute, it makes me giddy!

See other great on the needles projects at Patchwork Times.

What a great variety of projects - nearly from head to toe!

Ernie's vest looks great.

Everything looks great. Love Ernie's vest and it looks like it fits perfectly. The little sweater is so cute. I am going to try to figure out how to make one.

That flower sweater sure is cute! I know what you mean about sewing in zippers on a sweater, a real project, but yours looks great! Mine yarn isn't cooperating as much as yours!

Love the colors of your sock. I've knit several sweaters but haven't made one with a zipper yet. Someday!
