Still Knitting! Really!

I know that I've been showing more crochet projects than knitting projects of late (mainly, as I have been working on more crochet than knitting). However, that does not mean that I'm not knitting. I'm just not knitting as much as usual (yes, we can blame Bioware for some of that too).

Meanwhile, I am still trying to knit all the sweaters from A Fine Fleece. Here's some progress updates:

Corduroy, this simple gansey has been perfect for my current attention span knitting. Simple and mindless. Great to pick up and knit a few stitches during cutscenes or long load screens. I'm loving how the Knitpicks City Tweed DK is knitting up. Yes, it's going to pill like crazy, but oh how soft and warm is this sweater going to be!

Since I love the City Tweed DK so much, I decided that to use the aran weight for Amanda. I originally started this one in Brooks Fiber Farm Rialto, but reality hit and I knew I wasn't going to have enough yarn (which is too bad, as it was turning out beautifully). I'm thrilled with the pattern stitch/drape/color of this so far. This is an other great just pick up and knit project!

Meanwhile, I decided that I loved Matt's Staghorn so much, I needed to knit one for myself. In yummy Black Water Abbey (the yarn color, Iris, doesn't photograph real well. It's either too purple or too blue. The real color is somewhere in between). This is a great cabled project for me. The cables are easily worked (not only do I have the patterns memorized, I don't need a cable needle to work them). So it's an other just pick up and knit project.

So lots of projects being worked on (as usual) with out a lot of finishing (as usual). Eh. Things get done when I get them done!
