This is where I am right now with Elegant Empire. The main knitting is done. I need to kitchener the two back pieces together, then pick up stitches to knit the front band. Almost done. But I know that I'll need patience, time, and concentration to do the kitchenering, and when will that happen? Uninterrupted quiet time... what a concept. I was hoping for today. Maybe after lunch. We'll see.
In the meantime, since I'm so close to finishing this sweater, I'm starting to ponder what to knit next. I do have a shawl on the needles that I can work on, and a couple of pairs of socks, but I also want to get another sweater going. Unfortunately, nothing's really leaping out at me at the moment. Maybe it's partly because I feel kind of lumpy and all the cute sweater patterns out there right now are pretty fitted. I have a couple of possibilities that I'm letting mature in my mind. We'll see.
I've also done more on the Lagoon socks, but they're just plain old stockinette, toe-up socks. Nothing that requires much concentration or expertise. However, they are very mesmerizing :)
It was serendipitous that I managed to get the heel to start right where the right color is! I'm very pleased about how that turned out. I hope I can swing that in the other Twisted Fiber Arts yarns that I have.
Sooo, all three of you out there... if you have any good sweater recommendations, let me know!
