A bit more progress, and some older projects

I got a bit more work done last night while we watched Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest. I got called in to work for a C-section, and didn't get as much knitting done as I wanted. (happy birthday shiny new baby girl!) The right front is done to the shoulder, and I've begun the back. I'm contemplating going back to the shoulder and leaving live stitches to do a three needle bindoff to join it to the back. Wouldn't take much to just short row those last few rows. I'd rather do the three needle bindoff than sew a shoulder seam...

Here is Ben in his Pakucho Organic Cotton sweater. The pattern is "Jamesy" from Knitty. He wears it alot, and it's bearing up well.

I wanted to show a few of the Dale of Norway sweaters I've made.

First is Paul, sitting in front of the fire last week, in his Salt Lake City. I finished it in 2004. I love that he wears it on a regular basis, for everyday things. He looks good in it, and I want my hand knits to be worn! Not just for a special occasion...

Here's Ben, his girlfriend Jamie, and Claire - just before Thanksgiving dinner. I finished his Nagano in 2005 - he requested it, because it had dragons on it, and because it was primarily black. (He's wearing more color, now!) Claire's got on her Wonderful Wallaby made from Encore for excellent wearability for an 11 year old. (it's already got two years of wear on it).

Here's Claire in her Sirdal. I finished this in 2005, and luckily it still fits her. She's a real heat pump of a child, however, and rarely wears this sweater. It does make a good light coat on the occasions she dresses up.

Ooh, I love your version of Jamesy. I think I'll try that for my brother. (I'm a stranger who found your blog via the Central Park Hoodie knitalong--I'm hoping to try it next.)
