It looks like I am way behind at the rate that Barbara is knitting -
These are the yarn choices I started with. I decided to go with the medium grey which should probably surprise no one. I am not blond, which eliminated the purple (the color looks horrible on me) and I really would be unlikely to wear any of the other three. Boring here, but grey will go with everything I have.
I have just about complete Leif for the youngest - only have the last bit of the hood to finish this evening so that I can justify casting on a new project. I have also knit a hitchhiker scarf in the last two days since I needed a portable knitting project. Leif is not portable -three stranded cables on size 12,00 mm needles means bulky. Not quite random cables but I did eliminate all the YO s in the middle of the cables.
Promise I will post at least some progress tomorrow.
I am also going to convert the sweater to "knit in as you go" so that there will be no sewing to be done at the end: sleeves in the round, etc.
