WIP: Sweater for Pumpkin Jr.

A while ago my friend introduced me to Ravelry, the knitting and crochet site that so many get addicted to. Knitting is not my true love, and in fact I often find myself so frustrated by the "delayed gratification" of working on a project for more than a few nights. But, I knew I'd be stuck on a plane and in a hotel room, so I gave the site a try last week when I wanted to find a semi-quick project to take on my business trip. The site is cool, too because you can get pattern ratings and see how other people's projects are turning out.

I found this cute pattern for a ribbed sweater with a button that apparently was from Prima back in 2005. As you can see, I am NOT knitting it in lavender (collective sigh of relief) but in a really great indigo blue. So far, the pattern couldn't be easier. I did have to invest in a few different needles that I didn't have, but otherwise it will be pretty cheap. I chose some sort of acrylic so that I can wash it when it becomes schmeared with sweet potatoes. Yay!

Doesn't feel much like knitting weather here this week. Must be global warming. What's going on in your neck of the woods?

So you are on Ravelry and you haven't friended me? Sob!

Love the sweater pattern. Can't wait to see the finished object.
