Running out of time!

I still have to knit about 4" and the buttonband rows to my ASJ. Gabriel's Shawl collar vest is up to 13" long. I still haven't started Claudius' CJS. I will drop everything to start my Faery Ring sweater coat on July 1st. I also need to make it in red for myself. I can't wait to begin! BTW, I had to order new yarn for it. Ultra Alpaca in the color Agate Mix, 12 skeins! It should match my hair!

Which side should be the right side?

Both sides are just as beautiful! I think it is going to have to be a reversible jacket!

Faery Ring KAL

I started a KAL (knit-along)on Ravelry for this fabulous sweater pattern. I am one of the co-moderators and co-administrators of the Faery Ring KAL. The creator of the pattern is Mary Scott Huff who is the other co-moderator and co-administrator of our group. I e-mailed her to ask her if she would ever do a KAL for the Faery Ring and she asked me to help set it up. I did so immediately! This was yesterday and I already have 48 members. The starting date is July 1st. This way I have time to finish my ASJ,CSJ,and the Shawl collared vest. (YEA RIGHT!) I might have to buy another bag! You hear that Gagi and Rudy-tudy!

Superstar by Lexie Barnes

So, I had to buy another bag! I needed one for the Shawl Collared Vest by EZ knitalong which started May 1st. The vest is for Gagi who lives in Troy, N.Y. for the college seasons. He'll be home on Saturday the 9th, so he can model it as I progress. He must choose the color. Then I will begin!
The CSJ (child surprise jacket) for Claudius will be made in the same colors as mine. I'll start his when I finish mine. I only have 1 set of needles. I am still on the increases of my jacket. It is progress nicely, still no mistakes.
