UFOs -February Update

I can't believe that today is the last day of February. And I don't mind a bit. Winter is starting to get to me. I need warmer weather. So here is what I have done to turn my UFOs into FOs.

I guess I would say that I doubled the size of Fay this month. I knit enough on it to not have to constantly be looking over at the pattern for every row so it's getting faster. I'm still loving it but just don't get to spend a lot of time with it.

And here is Jarrett. Still looking like he did last month... but I knit 1 row on the sleeve last night. I had Jason try it on just to make sure that we chose the right size to knit and make sure there is enough room in the arm holes. Everything seems fine so I feel I can continue on.

That's what the hold up was with it. I just wanted it to fit well. I wasn't sure about it for a while so I didn't want to go any further just to end up having to rip it all out --or never be worn.

So we'll see how busy March is and that will determine how much progress will be made on these two beauties.

Camo Cast On

Since I have been making some excellent progress on Fay, I allowed myself to start a pull-over for Sebastian.
The pattern is the Child's Tunic from Knitting Pure and Simple and I am making the size 2-4. This is my first top down sweater and I am very impressed. I see more of these in my future!

Love this yarn! It's Artyarns Supermerino in "Green Multi" 131. I'm not sure if I'll have enough yarn for the hood... I'm planning on going to the Knit Night tonight at my LYS and could pick up another skein along with the new Interweave Knits Magazine.
