This is one of my most recent nearly finished objects. It is called Elegant Diagonals and was designed by Mari Lynn Patrick. It was in the Spring 2000 issue of Interweave Knits. I used a cotton/acrylic blend yarn called Luxor dk that I bought at Smiley's on sale. I am really loving this sweater.

It has been done for at least a month, except for the closing. I was planning on using hook and loop tape, but can't seem to find any in the local stores. I thought about a zipper, but didn't like the way it looked. I am now considering either snaps, or maybe crocheting a border along the front edges, leaving some holes for button loops. For now it is sitting and waiting for me to decide what I want to do.

I am almost ready to start blogging regularly. First I needed to figure out how to get smaller photos so that they would actually load, and then I had to figure out enough about html in order to make paragraph breaks.

So here is my first new paragraph, and once my digital camera battery charges, I will hopefully have a picture or two to share.
