Works in Progress

An update at long last.
I've been dancing not blogging - I took an adult jazz dance class and found my inner dancing diva - I won't be dancing with the stars anytime soon, but at least now I know how to "pas de bourree" and also how to make a fool of myself in front of lots of people while wearing tight shiny clothing.

I've been knitting on a couple of things now and then as well.

This Lotus Blossom Tank without the funky alien head lotus blossoms (replaced the lace with "Milanese Lace" from one of Barbara Walker's treasuries) is coming along nicely with Blue Sky Alpacas Skinny Dyed Cotton. Nice, smooth cotton yarn and it comes in some really wonderful colors.

I've finished the sleeves for a Cobblestone Pullover for husband. I'm using Cascade 220 superwash and am enjoying it. This is slated for his Birthday in October as Father's Day has now come and gone and instead we got him an - oh yeah- nothing.
I'm working on the body in spare moments as it doesn't require too much concentration and I'm a complete nincompoop (I've never spelled that before - looks strange and wrong) if I can't get it done in 4 months.

And here's my sweet little work in progress with her own work in progress - a sweater for "Cluck" her doll and constant companion from birth. I love watching those pudgy little hands maneuver the needles and yarn.
