Progress :)

I love it when a weekend comes along and I make some good progress. I finished my Dad's gift and the back of my Drops Jacket.I've never made anything on needles so big before but the almost instant gratification is really nice. If this were the only thing I were working on I bet it would be done in a couple of weeks. My photos do no justice to the color, it is a beautiful olive green and I can't wait for the finished product. When we were at webs I initially had a brown yarn in my hands but the only had one skein, I am so glad I wanted this jacket bad enough to pick up the green yarn, it will be so much better for me. I hope to have this done by Christmas too if possible, it would suit the occasion. I may be overly ambitious though. I also worked on my Mom's gift and knit one row on my Tangled Yoke Cardigan. I have more gift knitting tonight but I may mess around with a hat pattern, we'll see how the evening takes me.

I got up yesterday and noticed how addicted to knitting I am, this is how my couch looks all the time, I can't remember when anyone last sat in this area :)

The only good thing about winter is the excuse to sit inside under a blanket with a movie, hot beverage, and your knitting. That and sweaters of course :)
