Yarn and WIPs and Seduction (Oh My!)

Long time no blog!  Aha yeah, it's been a crazy and stressful month.  Luckily, knitting has kept me sane.  Mostly.  Remember that KAL I told you about a while ago?  Where I'm trying to knit a sweater in 12 weeks?

I FINISHED IT!!  It's blocking right now, and I'm hoping it'll be done by tomorrow so I can take photos before returning to camp on Thursday.  The KAL is finished on Friday, so talk about cutting it to the last minute!

I loved knitting this sweater, but boy am I glad to be finished.  I've been itching to start something else, on my own time, without a time limit.  I've caught myself cruising through dozens of patterns instead of knitting my cardigan, so obviously I'm ready to move onto something else.  Heck, I've bought yarn to make 2 or 3 other projects, and they've been whispering to me ever since, trying to lure me away with their softness and delightful difference from my exclusive 3 month project.

This is Classic Elite's Mountaintop Vail, a fingering weight alpaca and bamboo yarn I've bought to make this gorgeous cardigan.  Yes, I have another cardigan planned.  Don't ask me silly questions like "why?!?!", look at the pattern and you'll see why!
I bought this gorgeous wool/alpaca/silk worsted weight yarn at our brand new yarn shop, and I'm going to make this shawl/scarf out of it.  Actually, I'm planning on starting this tomorrow.  This yarn is yummy, SO YUMMY.

Yarn can be horribly seductive.

Anywho, I'm mostly just babbling to give an update.  Believe it or not, but I have done some sewing.  Remember that top I hinted at in my last post?  Yeah, it's nearly done.  Been nearly done for over a month now.  All that's needed is a sleeve hemmed, and maybe a bit of shaping added to the front.  Uh...I'll probably get to that when I get home next time.
