Don't worry, I have been knitting.

Whew, this week is "Bill Johnston Pirate Days" in the town where I work, which means everything is about five times as busy and usual. The week leading up to this has been just as crazy with preparations for the influx of people.

But I have been knitting!

Fist we have Elizabeth Zimmermann's February baby sweater.

Knit on size 6 (4mm) knit picks interchangeables, with some random acrylic I had in my stash.

I knit this entire sweater in about week while listening to Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. (Yes I know I'm way behind, I prefer it this way, please no spoilers) I actually finished it Thursday knight, but have just been too busy to stop and take pictures and post about it. The button holes are a little unevenly spaced, but I didn't notice until I went to take the picture today. It's not too noticeable, so I don’t think I'll do any thing about it. I need to pick up buttons while I'm in town tomorrow.

I don't have any babies to give it too, but I'm sure I'll find somebody.

Next we have Feather and Fan.

A little slower since I actually have to pay attention and I've been too tired lately to focus for too long.
But I am making progress!

I'm on row 90, and it is becoming nigh impossible to take a good picture.
Ah well.
