Starsky Progress

That's a finished back, and two sleeves in progress. I am loving the way this yarn is knitting up. I'm hoping to get a lot more work done on it (and maybe even finishing?) over Thanksgiving. We shall see!

If I were still in college, this sweater would have been done weeks ago. The transition to the real world has been a bit frustrating, as I have precious little free time to craft compared to what I'm used to.

Speaking of free time, I am fully relaxed and happy after a wonderful weekend with my better half. I surprised him for his birthday with club tickets to the Penn State vs. Temple game, and we had an awesome time getting totally drenched while cheering on our alma mater. :) Ben is one of those people who can guess a movie's plot 5 minutes into it, so being unpredictable and surprising him is always a little personal triumph. (P.S.: Get Well, JoePa! You were missed this weekend!)

I'm working on a ton of swap stuff right now that I'd love to post, but I'll just have to wait until some packages reach their destinations. I'm doing some personal swaps right now, and also the awesome Christmas Stocking 2 Swap on Craftster.org. My partner is talented beyond words, and I've been working extra-hard on her stocking and goodies. I can't wait to send out to her! And as an added bonus, this is majorly getting me into the Christmas spirit.

Here is some lovely yarn from JoAnn's that I got on sale. I'm envisioning a hat, scarf and glove set. It's a bit of a color departure for me, as I usually don't wear pink, but it's growing on me.

Btw, apologies for the crappy pictures. Now that it's daylight savings, it's dark by the time I get home. :-/ I must come up with a better system.
