Some Knitting and a blog Friend

I have been knitting, really, I have. I finished both the Girlfriend Swing Coats except for blocking and sewing on the ribbons, yay! I rarely knit something twice and I managed to do both of these before I really got sick of them. They are so cute! A little slow progress was made on the never ending Pulse sweater. I hate this thing! I know my brother will like it and really I don't want to waste the yarn. It is not yarn I would easily find a different use for and it is about half done, I can do this! The carrot at the end of the tunnel is casting on for my mom's Glenn sweater. I have been planning this one for some time. It is an ambitious project for me but I don't care if it takes a while because mom will enjoy it and I need something complicated to pick up every now and then. I finally got up the nerve to rip out and re-do the neck of the Durrow sweater for my twin brother. I had to wing it but I think it came out OK. It has been pronounced wearable and that is the important thing. My twin is always happy to wear the things I knit for him so he might be getting another hat soon. I think I will be casting on a bunch of new projects in the near future!

I went to a knit night in Hanover last night! I heard about it on Ravelry. It was exciting to finally meet one of my fellow bloggers in person! Amy from Fluid Motion was really nice and I had a great time. She had some totally awesome Christmas tree ornaments that she made out of yarn and little needles. I look forward to meeting the other knitters in the group. I have never had the chance to knit with a group of knitters mostly my own age and I think it will be fun times!
