What's on my needles...

I finally started a new project. I decided on a cable sweater. I had so much fun with the Irish Hiking scarf that I wanted to do a sweater. What do you think so far??? I tried to get a photo of the picture in the pattern but it didn't come out.

I haven't decided yet, but, I may change it from a round neckline to a V neck since that is what I was originally looking for anyway.

I finished my Irish Hiking Scarf. TAA DAA...

I didn't fringe it. I thought it looked a little more grown-up without the fringe. What a fun project!!! After I finish the sweater, I may make another in a solid cream color.

I have not just been sitting around knitting lately. Hubby and I went to the park the other day and this is one of the shots we took...

I started the injections for my knee on Monday. YYOOUUCCHH... Boy did it hurt. Although it didn't help that it's been so tender lately. 4 more shots to go and the doc says some of my pain will be in less. We'll see...I'm still skeptical. If anyone out there has had these shots please tell me how they worked for you...

My life update...

I finally finished my Irish Hiking Scarf. I used 2 1/2 skeins of Lionbrand Homespun. It came out really great. I'll post a picture as soon as I get some batteries for my camera.

With the scarf off my needles, I am now looking for a new project. I am hoping to find a "V" neck, long sleeved sweater with a simple stitch pattern. (anything simple that isn't miles of St. St. I am seriously looking at the Cable Tee from the Ample knitters website. One of the ladies on the list designed the pattern for a KAL last year (at least I think it was last year). It's a free pattern and it comes in many sizes. I had several ladies suggest it and they said it wouldn't be too hard. I just hope I can add length to the sleeves and not have it look out of place.

While I'm trying to find the perfect "V" neck sweater, I may start another one to pass the time. I was looking through my patterns and came across an old cables sweater from the 80's. It looks very similar to the Irish Hiking Scarf pattern. I may just go ahead and start it after all.

I know I haven't posted about my knee in a while so here goes. I just got approval for the Synvisc injection. I have been waiting since last Aug. These injections are supposed to work like WD40 for the knee. It's supposed to lubricate the joint and reduce pain. I sure hope so...it's been so bad lately. I had a cortisone shot a few weeks ago, which seems to have worn off already.
