Another one down...

I am pretty excited, I finally finished a prototype that I have been working on for weeks.  Unfortunately that is all I can say.  Sorry, I am submitting this baby as part of a design proposal, so mum's the word.  The bright side is, for now, I am done working on proposals for publication.  That means I will actually be able to talk about what I am knitting!

Before I finished my prototype, I started swatching different colors for Olive.  I have been in love with this design since I first laid eyes on it!  Luckily, the designer/yarn company recently made the pattern available for download, so I was able to get a hold of it.  Of course knitting a sweater out of sock yarn is a bit masochistic...especially considering I have two other sweaters on the needles, one in lace and one in sport weight yarn. 

Once I finish (or frog) everything I have hanging around, I am going to knit or design something in a nice bulky yarn! Knitwear in fine yarn is lovely, but such slow going!  Sometimes I wish I lived in a much cooler part of the country so I would have a use for bulky knits.  I'll probably knit up a sweater for my nephew...nothing like a toddler sweater in bulky yarn to make one feel like they are getting some knitting done!
