Here's a progress report on my current projects. Now that I finally have a digital camera that works and takes good pics, I can update.
Over 50% Complete:
This is the front, sides and back of the Pea Pod Baby Set Cardi for nephew #3, who is expected to arrive on my brother's birthday, August 6. It's 100% merino, so I knit it for a 6 month old, hoping he'll enjoy it when it's cold here in January. Well, HE may not enjoy it, but I know I will enjoy seeing him in it, and maybe so will Lawyer-Pants (my hubby), nephew's parents and Lawyer-Pants' mom.

About 50% Complete:
Lelah-Penny top. See yesterday's post. I finished the sleeve and am now working only on the body.
Under 50% Complete:
This is the Lion Brand Incredible yarn racerback top. I'm not hugely excited about it, and only picked it because I have never knit with ribbon-type yarns. Hopefully I'll finish it before the summer's over. The colors are vibrant and fun.
Yarn stash for yet-to-be-started projects. The GGH Savanna in Raspberry is for a cabled turtleneck, and the Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Meadow (yummy yummy yarn) in for the Grannie Smith Cardi. I probably won't start either of these until August so they will be done when it starts to cool down here. I also have some Peruvian Uros Aran yarn in light orchid, not pictured, that might become a Forecast for my mom.
The Knit Pick's Shine Sport in Orchid is for Orangina. My needles arrived yesterday, so I am swatching for this TONIGHT. The elann.com Connemara in Cashmere Blue is for the Prosperous Plum Tank. This pattern only comes in one size (28"), which is a little teeny for me, so I will have to adjust it first. That might not even get started this summer, we'll see.
