I don't see a thread for these so hoping it is ok to start one.

I'm wearing a recently finished jumper today. It's knit with wollmeise yarn and is a pattern called dusty road by Carol Feller.

What has everyone else been making?

I like the textured bit on your sleeves - makes the knitting more interesting too.
I've just finished off my second pair of socks which had sat there for a month waiting to have the last 8 stitches grafted and ends sewn in.  It took me all of 10 minutes!
I wanted them out of the way to start on a new sweater but it will be a while before it is a finished article.  I might post a pic of progress as its my first ever sweater knitted in the round using cables.

The lace panel goes down both sides as well I must try and take some pictures of it on me.

Do share I would love to see them. I have another one one the needles a more simple pattern but with stripes as part of a KAL with a local shop.

I love your sweater MltM.  The lacy patterns are lovely.  What pattern did you use?

I've still not finished my Easter Peter Rabbits yet - got sidetracked when I sewed the first one back to front!

It's by an Irish designer called Carol Feller and it's called Dusty Road. Its actually a pretty easy lace pattern to get into he swing of so I really enjoyed knitting it.

Nice pattern and love the colour. Did it take long to knit?

I cast it on the day before Christmas Eve but that is no reflection on how long it takes more how easily I get distracted  0_0

A blanket for my daughter to take to university with her when she deserts me in September.  She calls it her Joseph blanket.

Lovely colours. Your daughter will probably spend a lot of time thinking of you, while hugging her precious blankey.

Good grief, that's a lot of crochet.  It must have taken ages.

I do hope so, I am not coping well with the idea of her going at all.  I know she will have a fabulous time doing what she loves, but I shall miss her dreadfully.

It too me a little over 2 months off and on in the evenings.  Once I got the pattern in my head I was fine and could lose myself in it.

Aww Tawny that's lovely - story and blanket. She will be back you know and you can visit.
I made a tartan bubble skirt for my daughter when she first went to uni and I made a knockoff Alexander McQueen dress for her graduation. That won't be long in coming round, believe me!
