Something Finished, More to Go

It didn't take me long to finish this sweater out of Noro Matsuri. It was the last past of getting the colors evenly distributed on the sleeves did take some patience. I'm happy with the results. In fact, I have it on as I write this!
Now that's done, I'm working on finishing up my other UFO's. Thing is, they all take charts of one sort or another. That leads me with the dilemma of needing a more mindless project. That next leads me to the dilemma of taking on YET ANOTHER project. What'a girl to do....
This is my friend Elizabeth's sock that she cobbled together using a long repeat colorchange yarn and a self-striping yarn together. Sock two is on the way....This photo doesn't even begin to do the colors justice.
And, one of those Gotta Have It fall folliage shots taken while I was waiting for the Sunday Knitting gals to arrive this week. The colors seem to have come out just overnight this year. Quite sudden.

I was just thinking last week that the fall colors weren't very vibrant. And then this week, they popped!

Pretty sweater!

Very nice! It is hard to make Noro stripes match up.

CAN I FIND OUT WHAT YARN SHE USED FOR THE VLUE GREEN STRIPPY SOCK? IT IS SO PRETTY!

Wendy,she used a self patterning yarn and a yarn that had lots of random color variation.
Another example of this kind of work can be found in my sock contest posts. Liz was inspired by Lynne in BC. That's the heading of the post in my blog if you want to take a look.
