There is another thing that I have been doing.....

This is Gibson, designed by Norah Gaughan, who has always been one of my favorite designers... To see how it (I HOPE) will look when done see here  that is a ravelry link, so you can see how it goes together.  This is the first time that I have done a top down sweater and I have to say I love it.  I can actually try it on and see how long it is and stop when I think it is right as opposed to guessing.

This has gotten me started looking for top down in Ravelry thinking I want to do another one.  It has gone together really quickly and I love the color.  This was yarn I had in my voluminous stash and is a bit off gauge, but it is working out ok and I am happy so far.  It is on US 10.5 needles, which I normally feel are broomsticks but it was worth it because it is FAST!
