There she goes again

Wow, did I disappear off the face of the earth or what? It seems that way, since my last post was back in January, but I promise, I'm still here!

Since that time, I started and finished another Age of Brass and Steam for another girlfriend of mine. We had lunch on February 1 and I was able to give it to her then. I finished it just under the wire, on January 29. This was knit with Malabrigo Arroyo in the colorway Lavanda. It's a pretty deep plum and dark gray / black variegated color.

Most of my other time has been consumed with knitting my Beck sweater.I have finished the body, tried it on, and am pleased as punch at how it fits so far. Now I am knitting the sleeves and they are between 2/3 and 3/4 finished each. I am hoping to have it finished very soon so I can wear it. It is so soft and warm, yet light! The beauty of Berroco Folio (alpaca).

The color is off in the photo, but here is the bottom of the sweater.

I have a grandnephew now! My oldest niece gave birth a wee bit earlier than expected but he is not too small, considering (he was 6 pounds 4 ounces at birth). Baby and mother are both doing well, and I got to visit them Tuesday. Busy, busy, just not a lot to show. Hopefully a sweater to share soon though!
