Loving This Pattern!

February Lady Sweater Ravelry

I am so loving this pattern!
So much so that I actually haven't worked on any of the other projects I had planned to over the last week. Every time I have had a moment to myself I find myself knitting away at this sweater.

I am not sure if it is the ease with which a bulkier yarn allows you to knit at (especially after my Juliana ;)), or if it is the wonderful lace pattern which keeps me going - whatever it is I am enjoying this pattern no end!

I have already got to the end of the body and am on the garter stitch edge which I will more than likely be able to cast off today. 

That means I should be on the sleeves by tomorrow so I could possibly have a finished sweater by next week - that is if the sleeves go as quickly as the rest of the sweater!

My buttons for the sweater have also arrived and I think they suit to the overall look and feel of the sweater beautifully.

They are made of Buffalo horn and I love the rustic look that they provide:

I am also making progress in my big clean-up and rearranging project which I am busy with at work. 

It may sound a little fanatical, but I am loving the structure that our work-shelves are slowly acquiring :)

Weaving cloth and knitting yarn

Reading wise: I am just about finished my book from last week and look forward to starting a new book shortly.

How has your week been so far?

I will be sharing this with all my Tuesday and Wednesday friends so hop on over and be inspired :)

    1. Hi Jayne,
      I think the colour is perfect for the weather and can't wait to wear it later this week :)
      The buttons are from Drops - to be quite honest I don't often use buttons in my knits so I was pleasantly surprised at their selection.
      Thanks so much for your visit.

    1. Hi karen,
      The pattern was a great knit and I think I will definitely have this as a reserve pattern when I sit around wondering what I could possibly knit (not that that scenario happens too often ;)) and I think I would like another one in a different colour.
      Thanks so much for your visit.

    1. Hi Lucy,
      I agree with you Drops Nepal is really super. But I think I am probably really biased as I am a big Drops fan :)
      Thanks so much for your visit.

  5. Your FLS is looking wonderful :)

    I love your craft shelves, I'd love to have my yarn on display rather than shoved in a box

    1. Hi Evelyn,
      I find that having the yarn on display can be very inspirational to our clientelle at work as it helps them to focus on colours or projects. I would also love to do that at home......maybe one day :)
      Thank you so much for your visit.
