My first adult size sweater!

I really like the sweater. I love the color, I like the pattern and everything. It would have fit better if I do the next size up. But I was afraid of running out of yarn since the size I did called for 1430 yards and I only had 1400 yards. It turns out I could have done the next size up because I had one whole skein untouched!

Earth Day Sock
I finished the Earth Day socks! I casted it on Earth Day last year and after finishing the first one, I didn't touch it for almost a year. I think it's having to tackle the Japanese short row that was making me procrastinate. In the end that was a good reason because I did a bad job with the Japanese short row on the second sock. They turn out a little longer for me so I might make them a gift. [ravlery link]

Gentleman's Fancy Sock

First of the Gentleman's Fancy Sock from Knitting Vintage Sock with Schaefer Anne yarn is done. I hope the color is not too complicated for the pattern. [ravelry link]

Retro-Style Shrug

Retro Shrug from Lace Style with Malabrigo in Stonechat color way. Two skeins of Malabrigo worsted was just enough (cutting pretty close) for the medium. I think large would fit me better though. That means we'll need more then two skeins for sure (with lots of left over). [ravelry link]

Your sweater is so awesome! I'm dying to make one of those cabled hoodie patterns, but it'll have to wait till fall. :)
