Look at me! Look what I’ve been doing!


Can you believe it?! Somehow or other I was able to knit a bunch this weekend. This picture doesn’t do the time I put in justice because unfortunately there was ripping and reknitting – but I don’t even mind that because I’m just so happy to be KNITTING! I’m loving the yarn, the pattern, the progress! Knitting on size 9 needles is GREAT for progress!

I love how the different patterns match up together and these pictures really show the true color of the yarn – which I love. I LOVE IT! I LOVE KNITTING!


  1. That’s absolutely stunning – can’t wait to see the finished object 🙂

  2. So pretty! Both the pattern and the yarn. Can’t wait to see more! 🙂

  3. Oh, it’s lovely 🙂 Welcome back to Knitting!

  4. You go grrl! Happy Hanukkah, too!

  5. Hey! Your knitting is looking great, Cara. I’m dying to start that sweater, but have a bunch of little stuff I want to finish and clear out first.
    Happy Hanukkah!!

  6. Yay knitting! It looks great.

  7. ohhh i don’t see any pictures 🙁

  8. I’m so used to knitting on small (US 1) needles all the time that I forget how quickly knitting can go when you use a normal sized needle. It’s great!

  9. Glad to hear you have recovered your knitting mojo,Cara!
    “And we’ll have fun, fun, fun
    Till Daddy takes the needles awa-a-ay…”

  10. Oh, Cara’s got her groove back! Yay!
    And Happy Hanukkah, as well. 🙂

  11. Your post is a bit like the pied piper’s song…must get me some Catbird…remember that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, k? Blue skies!

  12. oh it’s GORGEOUS! How fun! yay for knitting!!! I have been knitting again too (a little) now that I’m not feeling so sick (YAY for better living through chemistry) and have some Christmas knitting in progress!!!
    Congrats on getting back the kniting mojo – it’s working great! hehehe

  13. It’s gorgeous! You’re making me want to knit it now! Perhaps after the holidays…

    I am so happy to see you knitting and posting. The sweater is going to be beautiful. I want to make it, but don’t see where I have time to start until after your birthday.

  15. Gorgeous, Darlink!

  16. Looking good, Cara!! I’ve been thinking of doing Oblique myself, so I’m keen to see how yours progresses before attempting my first knitted garment for myself. At least babies are easy to knit for … all rectangles, no shaping 😉

  17. Well you were busy doing other things for a few months;) so glad to see you really enjoying yourself again! It’s a great shade of blue and really nice pattern.

  18. Fabulous! Gorgeous! Inspiringly beautiful!

  19. So very good to hear that you’re doing and feeling better!

  20. wow i love it!! what a great color. keep on knittin’ girl!

  21. Sorry, but I thought this was a pregnancy blog.
    glad the mojo has resurfaced!
    the most I have knit in the past two weeks is half of a childs single color mitten for my two year old. Sigh. I don’t attribute it to my own (mini eight week) pregnancy. My scapegoat is that its the final weeks of my last grad school semester before I tackle my thesis. I read for school at lunch instead of knitting for an hour. hence my lack of yarn time.
    That is some purty yarn by the way. Very rich looking.

  22. Beautiful Cara. It’s the perfect marriage of color, yarn, and pattern.

  23. Yay!!
    It’s beautiful, too!

  24. Looks lovely.
    What a great color.

  25. Yay! It looks wonderful. I wish I could get productive on something more than a scarf or mittens! Well, no, I don’t. If I wanted to, I would. Simple as that.

  26. That is really pretty. I love the color, love the textured blocks/sections. Looks great.

  27. Congratulations! I think you may have stolen my knitting mojo, though, as I haven’t really knit much of anything in a while…
    I’m going on a trip tomorrow, though, and bringing knitting on my long plane flight (and then there will be a few long car rides), so hopefully that will snap me out of it. Now I just have to decide what to take!
    Happy Hanukkah, too!

  28. Just wanted to say thanks for pointing out that fabulous pattern. I love the designer and this was the perfect pattern for some handspun alpaca that has been aging well for umm, a few years. Then it took me 3 weeks to find the darn yarn, but I found it on Sunday and calculated yardage and I have just enough (with some unspun left in the bag for emergencies). I’ll be starting this on — ta da — January 1 as my Xmas knitting will officially be over.
