Happy 2007!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday! Best wishes for 2007!

This book just came out two days ago. I've been looking forward to the release day. It's a beautiful hardcover book, Classic Knits by Erika Knight.

The deep v-neck sweater on the cover was enough to make me want to buy it. The pattern suggests a lightweight cotton blend yarn, but I think I'll prefer a warm wool blend instead. There's also a round-neck cardigan in fine-weight mohair and a pretty camisole in fingering-weight yarn with a cute cable detail. These designs are delicate, feminine and absolutely wearable. I'm excited just thinking about what yarns to get.

Jarrett Progress

I still have the right front and one more sleeve to knit before making the buttonbands and collar. I started blocking the pieces that are done.

I can't wait to finish and give this to my husband. I've been very good at knitting this sweater without distractions from other projects. Hope I get through the boring finishing quickly because I'm so anxious to start something else on my to-knit-list, most likely the Isla sweater. And also this lovely Kid Silk Haze cardigan.

Jarrett looks great so far. You gotta ask your husband to model for it!!!

Classic Knits looks good. I will have to pop by B&N and see if they have a copy for me to drool over. ;-)
