Spring Fever

I must have spring fever. That's the only thing that could explain my sudden urge to finally sew the seams on this sweater. It's been languishing in my UFO pile since July of last year. But I woke up this morning to a beautiful March day and was in need of some pretty spring colors and non-wool yarn. So, with a little help from these cuties and a couple of Tylenol's later....
 
....sleeves were achieved! This teal green color is hard to capture on camera. Now there's just the fun yoke section to knit. I've also been working away on my Textured Shawl, version 2.0. Much happier with the drape on this one.
Hope everyone is enjoying this first week of March. There's still time to enter into my first giveaway, if you haven't already. For more WIP fun, head on over to WIP Wednesday with Tami's Amis.

  1. Hooray for working on the UFO pile! Your sleeves look perfect. I bet they will be the most annoying part of the whole thing & the yoke will be a lot more fun. The textured shawl is very appealing -- I love the color and the texture. I hope the yarn is as soft as it looks in the picture.

  2. Oh my, I LOVE the short sleeved top! It's gorgeous. I just bought yarn for a tank top close to that color.

  8. Both projects are so pretty! I'm thinking that you were actually wise to tuck away an almost finished spring-like project, so that now you can finish it in time to wear in the warm weather. I'm eyeing a t-shirt pattern in the latest Interweave but I'll probably finish it in the middle of winter if I cast on now!
