Project in process and others on the way

2 photos to, my almost completed sweater. I have a sleeve in progress and then I will sew it together and send it off. (I knit the body with circulars...I am not fond of finishing, so I thought I would get done faster if I limited my seams. ) This is a bulky 100% wool called Ironstone. It is a pretty purple with burnt orange ribbing. It looks like a size 10, but I don't have a handy child to try it on. This is the sweater I asked advice on a few weeks ago...I am doing a pullover pattern from Lion Brand.

The other photo is a hat from the last campaign that I didn't get mailed...and a pair of mittens. Both are made with Lion Brand Wool...from my stash purchased at a local discount store...for $2 a skein! Such a deal, and it is so soothing to be able to decompress from my very stressful job to create these items for children. My knitting is plain, but warm. It is such a privilege to be able to do this.

Lovely work! I'm not a fan of finishing either, so I often use the top-down raglan pattern with no seams. Though seams do add firmness to a sweater that might aid wear.

Beautiful knitting, and beautiful words! Thank you, Sally.
