In the meantime, i am still working on the sweater, I do not have that much more for the back and hopefully will be able to start the front this weekend. I am also working on the celtic cable scarf when I need something different to do and bought the stuff for a baby blanket and a lap throw for Don. So, my stash is growing, I keep buying, but oh well. :) Take care and look for the pictures in a bit

Well, as if I did not have enough to do, I picked up something else this past weekend. I saw a scarf pattern that I fell in love with called exchequered, it's a decomposing check pattern and I though that it as really cool. I had been afraid of trying the two color thing, cause I thought....hell, i don't know what I thought, I was just scared to try. This one was two colors, but it was double knit, I found after reading the pattern. Ok, so why not try it? I deliberated for a few days and then on Friday I went and bought the yarn and needles. I read and reread all the stuff I could on double knitting on Saturday and on Sunday I cast on...and hey, it was easy! Sure, the holding two strands thing was a little challenging at first, but by the third row I seemed to have the hang of it. I got to the first change through for the check and it went ok, got to the second, again ok....I am loving how it looks and I apologize that I do not have any pics yet, but my camera batteries are fresh out and I have to go buy another set of rechargeables before I can take any. So look for them in the next couple of days.
