Speed Knitter

I've been working on the secret cashmere project for Black Pearl Yarns for 1 week and 1 day and look what I've completed!

I have a finished back and 1/2 of a front!

I don't know how I went from knitting a complete sweater in 6 months to knitting one in about 2-3 weeks, but I'm not complaining one bit. I think it's a combination of adoring the way the cashmere feels running through my fingers and wanting to start my next project. This arrived for me yesterday:

Is this not the most gorgeous blue color you've ever seen? I am such a lucky girl!

Anushka said...

ooh, pretty!! i'm excited to see the finished product! plus - those black pearl yarns people do a nice job with the color.

I'm very jealous of the cashmere, certainly a great incentive to (a) throw all knitting down and get starting on the playing right way or (b) finish all items OTN immediately

Moni said...

yeah, I think working with cashmere would get me to only want to focus on that. I think I would be obsessive :)

So gorgeous!

Shoot - you are fast. But I know you and your cashmere obsession. You probably can't keep you hands off it, if I know you!
