The cold has arrived...time to knit!

Well, I figured I should become a more well-rounded blogger and write about more than just my children:) So, I've been knitting this sweater jacket for Lizzie for about six months...well I should say I started it about six months ago. The problem with knitting for me, as with all other things, is that I have too many ideas swirling around in my head. So, lots of ideas means many projects started, which means many projects unfinished. Plus, I don't have a whole lot of time to dedicate to knitting right now. But, I'm determined to finish this sweater. The problem is that it's knit on #3's (which are relatively small needles) and has a cable in it (which is more time consuming). Anyways, it's easy knitting, just really slow. I figure if I blog about this sweater I'll feel more motivated to finish it. I'm just crossing my fingers that when I do finish it, it will fit Lizzie:) Then I'm going to start sewing more...which is a whole lot faster!

This piece is the start of the right front...just two sleeves and a hood to go...well, and lots of tedious finishing work...
