Forging ahead

So, the weekend is here! I made a lot of progress work-wise - I sorted out what labs we will be doing in my experimental psych. class that I'm creating. So, I've made some major headway with that. I'm also almost ready to send out that paper I was mentioning - so all is looking up.

The afghan is also forging ahead. I try to do 1 square a day and have been pretty good about sticking to that. I'm almost half way there!!

I have also been making great progress on the lace tee. I've been working up the front with the lace pattern. After two sets of pattern repeats, here's what the front looks like so far:
Can you see the lace pattern going up the middle of the front? I'm actually really looking forward to wearing it now that I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think it'll be really lovely when it's all finished.

So, as I'm seeing this end of the tunnel, I've also been thinking about what my next knitting project will be. Have no fear though - I'm not starting anything until I finish this one first - otherwise, I feel that I really will accomplish nothing! Anyway, after stumblling around a few blogs, I think I found my next knitting project!

So, here she is, Matilda Jane:

Obviously, these are front and back shots. I think the color scheme I'll be doing will be a little more conservative though. I'm thinking of doing a dark bluish/lavender for the body of the sweater and a light blue on the trim and ribbon for the back. But, we'll see when I actually decide on a yarn to use. So, what do you think?

I love this pattern. I haven't gotten around to buying it yet. I think it will be beautiful in the colors you've chosen! I can wait to see it! Wendy

the lace looks great. I've been wanting to do Matilda Jane too so it will be fun to watch your progress once you get going with that.

The lace tee is looking really good. You get a lot of knitting done considering all your commitments, busy bee. :o)
