Some of the Things I've Been Working On

I know it's been a while since I've posted, so I figured it was only fair to give you a sneak peak at some of the knitting I've been working on this summer.
I started off with this Zick Zack Tunic (Ravelry Link), which you may remember because I did speak about it a while back. This lovely tunic with a ribbed bottom and cowl neck comes from the Spring 2009 issue of Interweave Knits and I've knitted it in Gloss Lace from Knitpicks (Oh how I love Knit Picks). So, I've completed the back and I'm almost finished with the front, so hopefully this will move into the Finished Objects pile soon.

Next on the list was a project that I started a long while back. It's the Froot Loop (Ravelry Link) sock from Knitty. I have to say that I really love this sock, it's something calming and relaxing to work on when I get frustrated with a project or with anything actually. I'm knitting it in Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock, which is a dream to work with and the colors are... well, to me they're like sunshine and summer in a sock.  What do you guys think?

Finally, there's this bad boy, which I only started a couple of days ago, but have been raving about since, well I think forever. It's the blasted Featherweight Cardigan (Ravelry Link) by Hannah Fettig over at Knitbot. I was going to start off making this in Alpaca Cloud by Knitpicks, but then I had something roaming around in my stash that was calling out for a project. Some Stroll Tonal in the Queen Anne colorway from Knitpicks. So, of course I cast on and now, I'm in love. No, seriously, I'm not kidding, I'm totally in love with the fabric this yarn is making. I cannot wait for this particular cardigan to be finished so that I can wear it. Oh, and don't think I've forgotten about the Alpaca Cloud, I have a very distinct feeling it too will become a Featherweight cardigan. I kid you not, this picture makes me drool!

So you see, I haven't not been knitting. I have been and now hopefully I can blog about it more!
