Kelly's project year ended up with 23 finished projects and 5 of them are adult sweaters! A 6th should be finished by the time we ring in the new year.
The Handspun Cowichan was finished in time for the camping trip and it was so nice and warm--the perfect camp sweater. This was The Orca Run by Beth Brown-Reinsel. Kelly's camping trip knitting was the blue crochet cardigan that she stalled out on some time ago. The pattern is The Curious Case of the Crazy-Stitch Cardigan by Michele DuNaier . She made great progress and hopes to have a finished sweater by New Year's Day. Other camping knitting included a charity hat out of some alpaca spirit yarn. It will be really warm.
Happy New Year everyone!
