Caleb's little sweater is coming along well now that I'm actually working on it.  I've got the front and back plus one of the sleeves done, the second sleeve is in the works and is looking decent.  After this I sew the front and back shoulder seams so I can start the hood, which is followed by the edging around the front.

The pattern is from a Debbie Bliss magazine which I absolutely love.  I find a lot of magazines have things that, while interesting or challenging, aren't things I would ever wear or use but that her magazines usually have a number of things I like.  For Christmas I was given a gift certificate to use for her magazines and I haven't gone to get new issues yet (the local shop sells back copies and I'm not particularly worried about them running out) because as soon as I get them I want to look through them and as soon as I look through them I want to start new projects and that's not a way to get things done.

I do have a bunch of things I want to knit next, a tea cozy for a friend of mine, a hat and mitt set for Caleb, and another sweater for Caleb (I want to design that one, haven't started yet, but have a ton of ideas, I'm thinking a cardigan and currently can't decide on the neckline) plus there's something I want to make for my soon-to-be-born niece, but that requires sewing on top of knitting and I need to consult a friend before I get started because I can't for the life of me understand the sewing directions.

I love, love, love that things are actually getting knit again around here.
