I've been working on finishing projects that I have already started because I have WAY TOO MANY still OTN and the project bags are beginning to gather dust.... :roflhard:

Finishing the "Leaves in the Rain" feels great! :woohoo:

My next project to finish is the Aran Jumper (pullover sweater) that I promised my DH. I made the first one using acrylic and it GREW when I washed it. :aww: :teehee: I didn't know then about "killing" acrylic. Had I known, he would have had a gorgeous dark blue Aran Jumper. Instead, we gifted to a friend of ours that it actually fits. :yay: I'm just waiting for the day that he wears it and I have my camera with me...

Doh! Found it. If there are any mods available, would you be so wonderfully kind as to move this thread to the Whatcha Knittin section?

Katrina I used a 1:1 ribbing. To make sure it wasn't too tight I made sure to have looonngggg stitches while casting off.

:aww: Thank you everyone! I'm still planning on getting the pattern posted. The yarn is Risata sock yarn from Knitpicks (http://www.knitpicks.com/Risata+Sock+Yarn_YD5420169.html). The color is "Grass".:inlove: I usually favor blacks, grays and blues but of late greens are the colorway I have been enjoying.:knitting:

However I've been exceptionally busy making toy-size (12" by 12") blankets for Toys for Tots. We are supposed to have 400 by December 1st and we only have 198 completed. :zombie:
