UMBRELLAS!!! Yes those are UMBRELLAS! I love it already and can hardly wait to finish!!!!!
I finished the fair isle last night, finished a decrease round and now I'm placing stitch markers for the raglan increases. I'm 13 3/4 rounds from dividing for the body and sleeves!!! This is so exciting.
Speaking of stitch markers, what do you think of mine...
Everyone uses their daughters hair elastics for stitch markers right? Haha! I can never seem to keep track of stitch markers...I have hundreds floating around in my house but can barely find 1 for a beginning of round marker so I go back to the hair elastics :) I drool over markers like these...

|Musical Non Snag Stitch Markers by winemakerssister|
|Owl Knitting Stitch Markers by lavenderhillknits|
but in all honesty I'd rather spend what little yarn budget I have on actual yarn and patterns than cute stitch markers. I do however have a birthday coming up wink wink :)
So tell me, what do you think of the sweater progress? What do you use for stitch markers? Speaking of gifts I feel it's time to do another giveaway...it's been a while. Next week I'll have something fun to give away :)
