I've finished three sweaters in the past two weeks. The first two were commissioned by a fellow member of FUSP and had to be complete and in her hands before Christmas. I thought I'd be able to finish the two on the cruise but they ended up taking much longer than I thought. I overnighted them to her on December 23 and the shipping tracker said they arrived on the 24th around 10 AM. It was pretty pricey but I had promised.
Today I finished Helena, a baby sweater I started back in October. I was drawn to it because another member of my NJ knitting group was making one and it looked like a fun knit. I got caught up in other projects and it languished for a while. When I looked at it yesterday I realized it only needed the neckband, a button and button loop. I worked on it as we drove down to Brooksville to catch a movie. Note the rosebud button. I think it's perfect for the sweater. Today I got some photos and posted it on etsy.
I think my next project will be the Laughing Carrots sweater, also for a fellow UU member. She bid on a sweater at the annual service auction. It's coming along but still needs sleeves and a button band. I don't think it will be finished in 2009 but early 2010 seems realistic. I know the recipient has been waiting patiently.
