Frogged the Peacock Plumes cardi this morning (ripit, ripit). The model shows the plumes lined up over each other, but the pattern chart shifts them to alternate. I decided I really liked the lined up version best, so ripit, ripit.

Yea!!! I got a set of interchangeable circular needles for Christmas!! No more runs to the craft store for every new project! It seems like I never had the right size and length needle in my stash. Now I need to get more double pointed needles and a wool swift and I'll be set (honest, that'll be it-- really-- no I'm sure this time...).

Started a new small project. I found a pattern on knitty.com for knitted wristwarmers/bracelets. This is my first attempt at beaded knitting. So far it is going fine. Hope I didn't just jinx it.

Finished the first bracelet. There are three different patterns. I'm happy with it so far.

Am back to where I was before ripping on the peacock plumes cardi.

Cider House front is up to the armhole shaping.

All my lace projects are in holding patterns.

Siobhan, do you ever have trouble with the interchangable needles coming undone? I tighten them and they still come undone. I don't know if it's because I do it lefty or I just don't tighten enough.

I'm still making my dad's sweater. I have no time to work on it and told him I might have it done for summer. Someday it will be finished.

My needles attatch with a twist and snap. They don't require tightening. I imagine after a while they will cease to be tight enough so I'll have to think of something, but so far I've only had one come undone and that was because I hadn't fully twisted it into place.

So far I'm very pleased with my rework of the peacock plumes cardi. Realized last night (just before falling asleep) that I'd messed up my row count. Need to remember to fix that today while I'm thinking about it or I'll forget entirely.

Fixed the row count, worked the armhole castoffs (this cardi is knit on circular needles-- no side seams) then decided I wanted the body a little longer. Had to rip and work another set of 16 rows and then rework the armhole castoffs. Am now back up to speed. I might have this one done in a couple of months.

Wow, it's been a long time since I updated this section!

Peacock Plumes has been finished for a while now.
Same with Cider House.
I'm working on a Lotus Blossom tank top, Consuelo from Debbie Bliss's Alpaca Silk, a lace shrug from Vogue Knitting, a lace pattern beaded choker, and some knitted flower accents I'm playing with.
There are also a few pieces of mending and reworking to do.

Never a dull moment!
