Peony

I'm working on a lot of stuff... I have a major case of startitis. I just keep grabbing needles and yarn. I need sweaters. And apparently, I need them now.

I have been drooling over Buttony for a few weeks now so I picked up some yarn on Friday evening for it. (Bernat Alpaca in pale, pale pink.)



I'm through my first ball of yarn already and it's going really quickly. (BTW, alpaca does felt, just not as tightly as wool. I had to try to felt my ends together.) I really like the color and the way the yarn is knitting up. I'm hoping it will be done before it gets too cold here. It's been really warm still with a few cold days thrown in here and there, but when it's cold, it's cold!! It gets really cold in my office too. I have a little space heater under my desk, but I don't really like having to turn that on all the time.

I also need to knit another pair of fingerless gloves that go a little further up on my hands. I adore my Fetching (both pair!), but they just don't go up high enough so my hands are ICE before I get down the street. Maybe I should knit a steering wheel cover too.

OOOh! If you find a pattern for a steering wheel cover, I may have to copy you! That sounds awesome!
