Late Hourglass


In keeping with the time theme, I need to keep working on Hourglass from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Of course, I am about a year (or more) late. All the KAL's are long over. The party is over, everyone has gone home. I don't see this posted on anyone's blogs...but still, it's new to me, and I really like the style. I think most of the errata have been corrected in my version of the book, so that's an advantage to starting late.

This is the first time in a long time that I am making something for myself. I would like it to fit, but that's another story. We'll see how it goes. This is being made out of Aurora 8 from Karabella in green. I figured it's my tribute to the Emerald City. It feels heavanly soft and keeps me warm while I knit it.

When hubby was gone, I got most of it done, and now I have stalled a little bit, for no good reason. I had tons of knitting time last night and instead of working on this, I started a new project....Kate. I don't know why. I used to only work on one project at a time, up until this year. Really, I was strictly a monogamous knitter and now- I have more projects on the needles than listed on that side bar, for sure. I guess I get lured into finishing smaller projects quicker. It's just fun. So, hourglass is coming along. I have one sleeve done and the body done up to the yoke....will it fit? I will save the gauge discussion for tomorrow.
