WIPs during mid sem break

It's the mid sem break! one week and it's almost over!! I've been watching errmm 1 1/2 season of Lost. (Note to self: start assignments soon!) I thought Lost was some silly idea of making 3 seasons (and counting) of episodes about a whole bunch of people stranded on an island. But boy was I wrong! Since friday, I've been doing nothing but watching Lost...while ahem! of course, knitting....

Currently I have two WIPs:

Sweater for Cousin P
Yarn: Schachenmayr Apollo 100% Acrylic
Needles: Susan Bates 4.5mm

Lets hope I get to finish it...this year?? The progress so far that you see was knitted while watching Lost and I still have about 6 or 7 inches more to go before I reach the armhole.

Its a simple stockinette all throughout except for the front of the sweater with the pattern that u see in the picture. The yarn is pretty dark and that's the best picture I could take of it. It's dark maroon in colour.

My other WIP:


Diamond Fantasy Shawl
Yarn: Knit Picks Alpaca Cloud (double knit)
Needles: 4.5mm Addi circulars

I'm on to the 6th repeat of the pattern and I'm stuck with a mistake...yet to be fixed....

But then...Rain discovered this...


Butterfly dress from Knit Picks

Its knitted with only 2 skeins of alpaca cloud! and thats what I have!! Tempting me to frog DFS and knit the dress instead..hmmMMMM!

Dress or DFS??

DFS or Dress???

Help me decide will you??

Oh my goodness, the DRESS is so pretty! If you have the figure to pull that dress off, (oh, how I wish I were so slim!)definitely go for the dress! It's lovely.

Hmm... I think your DFS is growing beautifully. It will be such a waste to frog it. Why not get another 2 skein of alpacca cloud for the Dress

That dress gave me a lot of grief through my own fault. I ripped 7 inches and left it alone. But the lace pattern is beautiful. Why frog? Get more yarns! :P
