Progress!

Just finished the 2nd sleeve of Ariann and connected the pieces - this is going to be a LONG a&& row to work on! I didn't even dare to count how many stitches it is across. But it's connected - I know that CeCe didn't take that long to finish once I got this far, so I'm encouraged.

111606 002 Edited to add: BTW, as a number of people have asked me which yarn I'm using for Ariann, I thought I'd mention that I'm using Brooks Farm Riata. I bought it at Stitches Midwest in August, and they don't have the color I bought on their web site but I've attached the link. They truly are a great group of people with fabulous yarns. This concludes my commercial announcement of the day.

Also bought the Rowan Country book and a ball of it for swatching the other day - I like it! May make one of the designs in this book eventually...just add that to my huge to-do list!

Ariann is looking great! I'm right behind you -- almost finished with the second sleeve. Woo hoo! It's so awesome when the finish line is in sight! I'm really looking forward to wearing this sweater!

Beautiful! By the end of this evening, I'll be at the same spot that you are at in your photo. Bonus: tonight is KIP night, and I get to knit it in the presence of la Bonne Marie herself! :)

Oh, that is beautiful. The sweater and the color - all of it! Can't wait to see the finished product. We do like the same things - kind of funny. I add some of your projects to my ever growing to-do list too!
