Hurriedly

I am hoping to get this sweater done in a couple of weeks.  I have lots going on, and many projects to complete before cold weather sets in.

I am lucky that this is a child's sweater, which means that it is a smallish project.  I have socks and a scarf waiting, along with sweaters for myself to complete.  One lacks sleeves and a collar, and the other 3 are either not started or barely started.  The almost finished sweater is a bulky knit, and at least one other is worsted weight.  The good thing about those is that they go quickly.  At least if you work on them.

Faster

I almost finished one sweater for the Princess, and started on her second. 

This is a plain stockinette sweater, in a beautiful pink.  She gets 2 pink sweaters this year, and I might get to make her a turquoise one later.  I have more to do for Christmas.

I am close to beginning the front half of my Vneck Boxy as well.  I use that for TV knitting at the moment, as I am still following the pattern for the sweater.  It is the Classic Child's Raglan by Jane Richmond.  Definitely worth the money, as I have made at least 4 sweaters from it now, and will probably make at least 2 more.

Restart

I restarted my Boxy sweater.  I originally ripped back to the ribbing because having only 3 rows was curling.  So I started to make it 8.  Then I began thinking about the Vneck Boxy.  Deciding that I would wear that neckline more often, I ripped everything out, and started fresh.

This picture is of the back, and I am working down as fast as I can.

I have to set this aside, however, for both birthday sweaters and Christmas knitting.  I really don't want to, as I rarely knot for myself, but I will since I have 2 sweaters to complete for a September birthday.  No worries though - I am close to being finished with one and the other is worsted weight, which should go relatively quickly.
