What a Wednesday!

Still knitting along on the sweater

I really love the accent lace!
I am still knitting on the LaBelle sweater.  Most of it is stockinette stitch, so good for knitting while watching TV.  I need 15 inches to start the armhole decreases,  I am almost to 13", so it won't be long now!  In the 1980's I was a knitting fiend!  I knit sweaters for all my kids and all my nieces and nephews.  I had also knit a couple of sweaters for Sweetie and for myself.  Since then I have gotten into quilting, big time.  About 2002 a friend showed me how to knit socks.  So I knit socks like crazy!  And then about 2007 I got into lace knitting and shawls.  I was still knitting socks, but have only finished one pair in the last year.  This is only the second sweater that I have made since I don't know how long.  The other being a February baby sweater for my nieces little girl who is turning 4 next week.  I have also been into knitting hats since we moved back to the cold winters in Utah.  I am still quilting like crazy, but mostly art quilts now.  I forgot how much knitting it takes to get a sweater done.  I have yarn to knit a February Lady sweater for myself, so I think that might be my next sweater, the baby sweater was a fun knit.

Two lovely loaves of bread

I just love the look of a fresh crusty loaf!

A couple of weeks ago I had posted about the bread book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.  I have tried it out and it works just like they said it would! And the bread is delicious!  I like that it doesn't use sugar in the basic recipe.  I have another batch in the refrigerator ready to bake when we are finished with these two loaves.

This is my WIP Wednesday, KCCO and Yarn Along post for the week!


  1. I used to knit only sweaters as well, and like you I then dabbled in socks and shawls-it just never ends! Your sweater to be is gorgeous!

  2. What a lovely pattern, I love the colour of yarn you are using too :)

  3. Pretty sweater. Lovely colour.
    Enjoy the fresh bread.

  4. I love the LaBelle sweater and I need to find that book! Your breads look delicious.
