If I'm Knitting, I'm Not Eating

Some knitting updates:

I finished the raspberry lacy cardigan. This fits me well, although the neckline is too wide and floppy. I'll pick up stitches around the neck and decrease to bring it in a bit so I won't feel like its slipping off. Love the lace at the waist.

The dark red lacy tunic. Finally finished this, after combating some technical issues in the short-row shaping of the shoulders. It fit me well, but I made one of my sisters try it for chuckles, and it was absolutely smashing on her. So she got a nice Hanukkah present, and I'll make another for myself that's shorter. (the true color is more of a cranberry)

Started a silky triangle shawl using a strand of mohair and one of silk.

Also started on a pullover sweater for me, in a lovely shiny teal. Size small!

And you knit too! The raspberry color is to die for. Such a pretty sweater. You're amazing.

Beautiful work, Amy. Love the colors, especially the teal.

I need to find a hobby that keeps me from putting food in my mouth. My mom's Peruvian caregiver taught me very basic knitting, mostly to make scarves. But I had to stop because of chronic arthritis on my right hand. I'm very frustrated because I really enjoyed it and found it very relaxing and Zen-like.

Beautiful work. I also love all of the colors. How long does it take you to knit a sweater? I am very impressed with your work.

I especially like the raspberry sweater - so delicate and beautiful.
