Lakeland Update

I have caught up with the last two weeks needlepoint this morning and it feels good to see this piece filling out. As the stitching is being completed, the perspective is becoming more evident. There is hope that I will like this once it is completed.

I have also been knitting J's jumper. I have now completed the back and sleeves. I started the front yesterday and may have done a bit more if I hadn't fallen asleep on the settee. So much for making the most of the boys being at the football!
The front is the only piece with the cable detail. There are two cable panels separated by stocking stitch. Once dinner is out of the way, I will be knitting again.
Starting tomorrow, I will be decorating so things may be a bit quiet here for a few weeks. I will definitely be trying to keep up with every one's blogs and I am sure I will find time to do something. I'll need something to wind down with at the end of the day.

You inspire me. I have put unfinshed needlepoint projects into the giveaway pile to let someone finish it. Shame on me. What I loved once...I did not love anymore and tossed it. Your persistent determination inspires me. Love your knitting. You seem to accomplish so much!

The cabling looks great. And I like that flecked yarn. This should be a really nice sweater.

I love the beautiful muted lavender and blue colorways in your needlepoint. That is a pretty big piece you are working on, Nd I have so much respect for people who can "stick with" a large needlepoint piece long enough to see it finished. I can't wait to see it done!
