crafty pursuits

Just giving an update on my crafty pursuits. I've finished the left front and back of the Vogue cable rib cardigan and am working on the first sleeve. I'm starting to worry about the size and how it will block. I set this project aside to make another infamous anthropologie inspired capelet (pdf file here). I'm done with the body on that and just need to do the sleeves. I've also been working on a couple of bracelets. I've been toying with the idea of selling some of them on Etsy.

Also, for anyone who may be interested, the pattern for the macrame owl from a few posts back is
the "Mr. Owl Ornament" from a booklet titled 'Twas the Knot Before Christmas' by Judy Palmer and Lois Anderson copyrighted 1978 and published by Quality Craft Instructions. There are numerous copies for sale on ebay right now.

Vogue Cable Rib Cardi WIP

Here is my progress so far on the Vogue Cable Rib Cardigan. There is some of the sleeve, some of the back and some of the front. It's not much to look at yet. I like the feel of the Cascade 220 superwash. It seems to be quite soft.
