Today I go to a wedding shower for a co worker and I'd like to finish sewing my penny patch on the machine but I will have time for a new hand work project. I'm knitting the tension swatch for the Japan Sleeves Sweater. (That's the penny patch in the background)
My local quilt/knitting shop is running this as a class. I'm an incredibly slow knitter so I figure if I take the class I actually have a hope of finishing the sweater. I fell in love with the pattern right away, the sleeves are a lace panel and the body is fairly simple stripes.
Don't you just love the colours of the yarn.
I've also started to attach some of the background squares to my epp stars. I don't want to be stuck doing all the background at the end. These stars my be taking a back seat to the knitting for a while, although I can't do complicated knitting when I'm tired so maybe the stars will see some action after all.
I'm linking up with Kathy an the other slow stitchers at Slow Stitching Sunday
