Leavin' on a Jet Plane...
Well, it's my favorite time of the year; a work related vacation. I will be leaving bright and early tomorrow morning for St. Louis. I go once a year to a chef's conference where I will be teaching a class of 50 students ServSafe. It's a class for chefs teaching them how not to make their clients and the general public sick by bad food handling practices. After I teach that class all day on Friday, I will be taking some classes myself. I always enjoy going because we eat at new places and this year, hopefully, I will buying some St. Louis yarn. I am hoping to break away from the rest of the group and bring home a few things from a local shop. If not, that's okay because I am going to make some really good progress on my newest project; a sweater for my new nephew.


I saw this yarn in The Knitting Corner and decided this looked more boyish than girly so I could make my new nephew a nice little sweater for a Christmas present. This will be my second baby sweater. I am taking it with me on the plane so I can have some quiet knitting; that is if I don't fall asleep...


Here is the pattern. I am making the cardigan and then the little hat too.
Here is where I am right now with the sweater. I am working on the back. It says to make it 13" so I am here...
Well, this is it for me until I get back. Hopefully I will have made some progress!

Really cute sweater and hat too! I may have to "wing" the hat for one of my preemie sets.

What a perfect sweater set for your nephew! Definitely manly! *L*
Have a great trip, hope you get to bring home lots of fibery goodness :

I have had a great time knitting it but hit a snag the other day and had to go to the shop for some help. So hopefully the nephew will get this thing before he gets too large to wear it.

Sadly, I did not have time to do much of anything except teach and take classes. I was really bummed that I didn't get to shop. I took $200 in cash with me and came home with $120 of it. Now that's pitiful!

I will post the sweater progress and two other things that I am working on as soon as I get some time. Thanks for hanging in there with me.
