It's been two weeks already?

What's on my needles: Cabled cardigan for me (The Sweater Sally Knit Instead, by
Sally Melville), new cozy for my mp3 player, feather and fan stole of my own design.

It's been a long two weeks because I have no finished projects to tell about... That's what happens when you are in the middle of a cardigan that's taking forever and you simultaneously cast on a stole in fingering weight yarn. I seem to be having problems with project monogamy.

The bad news: I'm not quite sure I have enough yarn to finish the stole... I'm working with 3 skeins of Lorna's Laces in Iris Garden. I'm going to throw two balls of a generic lace merino into it, with the Iris Garden on each end. I am hoping it will turn out pretty. :)

As far as the cardigan, I've worked it up thru the armhole, and completed the right front. I'm about 6 inches into the sleeves, which I'm knitting two at a time. Maybe another couple of weeks?

Danny will be home this weekend, so I'll be casting on for his socks while he's home. Finally a decent travel project. I do worry that I will be working on them for weeks and weeks, however, with the size of his feet. You know what they say about men with big feet? They need big socks. *smirk*
