Not So Excited Anymore...

So I started my Turtleneck Tube Vest (TTV) a week ago, and now I'm down to all the ribbing that's at the bottom. Man...I'm getting bored with it really fast. I've got about 5 inches to go until its done and I feel like I'm never going to get there. I'm trying really hard to just get it finished. I've decided that I'm going to take a reprieve from Fitted Knits garments and either finish up some of the socks I started or take on a smaller project. Until November...then I'm participating in my LYS's challenge. The challenge is to knit a sweater in a month. At the end of November they're having a fashion show to show off all of the new projects. I'm making a sweater for my mother for Christmas so I figure this would be a good time for me to get it done. It'll be hard with all the stuff I have going on starting next month... Also, I frogged the Diamond Top I was making...I didn't really like the way it was coming out.

The good news is that I did start designing my first knitted project this weekend. My co-worker inspired the idea and I'm looking forward to finishing up the design and actually making it. Its a cabling project so I'm making my chart first before I start knitting. It'll probably change as I go. Anyway, I hope to have more pictures up with my next post. It should be of my finished TTV...hopefully.
