Holy Krappy Pictures, Batman!!!

I remember when I first started using my new camera I didn't think there was that much of an improvement. I take it all back. These pictures suck.

Here's my progress on my FLAK. I think this little cool front we're having is inspiring me to work with wool again.



I'm a visual person and it's easier for me to see how to decrease than figure out where I want the crosses to start when I can't see them yet. Seeing all the finished FLAK's out there, I'm definitely inspired to keep working on this!

Here's the first sleeve of the Rose Leaf Pullover.



Still love the sweater, but I'm just ready for it to be done. It would be perfect for this time of year. It really should be my main concentration right now.

However, I've been in the mindless rhythm of the broken rib of the Bartlett Chanel Style Jacket



It just sorta flies off the needles. The pictures doesn't show the loveliness of the tweedy Bartlett yarn (did I mention I got it for $4/skein?). My only complaint about the Bartlett yarn is the weight. It's just that little bit too bulky for my personal taste. It's fine for this, as I plan on using this as a jacket, but I prefer DK/Worsted weight sweaters. The Bartlett is definitely a heavy worsted/aran weight yarn. I had been thinking about a pullover with the other color, but I know that it's going to be too warm for me. So I'll be doing an other cardigan with it. Maybe... I've been known to change my mind!!!

Today I'm off for a day out with my friend Betty, so not much knitting (or game playing for that matter) today. I'll still try to work a few more rows on the Rose Leaf Pullover.

Happy Knitting!
