I need more time off.....

So, what do you do with a week off of work?
On the weekend...I finished the Hand spun Alpaca for the farm. This was 100% hand spun from Leslie's prize alpaca Condor. I used 4 & 5mm needles and made my own pattern. I used approximately 1000g and it's sized M/L. About a 45" chest.

Monday... I finished a small hoodie for a co-worker who just had a baby girl. 9 lb.3oz. Knit from my stash (whoohoo). Pattern: Easy Baby Cardigan by Knitting Pure & Simple (free download). Yarn: Sirdar Snuggly Tiny Tots. I used 2 1/2 balls.Tuesday... I started a pair of Fetching. Finished on Wednesday on our road trip. Also knit for the farm with 100% hand spun alpaca. And I started a headband, but I'm not happy with it so I'm toying around with another idea and will start that this afternoon.While on our travels yesterday, I found A Treasury Of Rowan Knits at an antique shop. I think I found the cardigan for my birthday yarn. I also started my new sock , pictures to follow after I make some progress.
I know it's only been 3 weeks and I'm doing okay with knitting from my stash, (I did notice most of you think I'll fall off the wagon by spring) but certain people are making it very hard by posting new yarns. Scroll down and check out FOG! They know my weaknesses. ARG!!!!!
And I must say I am getting some great support from friends. Angelika sent me this link and I will be joining this one. I may not make a pair of socks every month, but I will be making socks from my stash.

So KNIT ON, my friends!

I was browsing your blog and happened on the cute tulip cardigan. I made one also for my Great granddaughter!! She is so cute in it. I agree on all counts, cute, easy, love the colors AND I learned to do the I cord border. Pat
