Knitting in the Sun

I haven't been around the computer too much lately. I was taking in all of the nice sun we were having. Well, it didn't last. We are down to the 50s now and rain again. :( It's suppose to be this way this whole weekend. So maybe I can get back to cleaning up my sewing room while we are stuck inside. I have a lot of organizing to do in there, before I can get back to my quilting projects. I'm one of those that if it's a mess, I can't really work on something. But I have some new fabrics waiting to be cut and sewn into a beautiful quilt. Not to mention, the many UFO's waiting to be worked on again. There are just too many wonderful patterns out there.

For now, I have been taking some knitting outside with me. I started a summer sweater recently. Here is my progress so far. It's called Slinky Ribs and the pattern in the book Custom Knits by Wendy Bernard. I found knitting is great to work on while sitting outside letting the kids play. I'm using the yarn called for in the pattern, which is Silky Wool by Elsebeth Lavold. This is a wonderful yarn and I am really enjoying using it. I hope to have more progress soon.
