Obsession with my Candy Corn Sweater

I am obsessed with finishing my Candy Corn Sweater. Also, I have to say that I'm not sure why I called it a Candy Corn sweater. I originally thought that the stitch pattern I was using was called Candy Corn, but it is really called Indian Corn. So I was going to change the name, but Candy Corn kind of stuck. So the name has nothing to do with the sweater other than I am making it over Halloween - well that's good enough for me.

Anyway, I took this picture on Tuesday and since yesterday I almost have the first sleeve completed. I'm hoping to complete it by next weekend.

I tried it on and it is looking pretty good on. I wasn't sure how the bulkier yarn would feel and the stitch pattern is kind of dense too, but I have to say, I think I am liking it.

I'm trying to finish this sweater and my Ute socks:

(Which are now almost up to the toe on the second sock) before I start my handspun hat.

Also, just an aside, I had a little alien visitor last weekend. So cool!!! She wasn't afraid of me handling her. I put her in my plant where a bird couldn't find her.
Have a great week!

Thanks for leaving a comment on our podcast blog. I'm about an hour outside of Columbus so it wouldn't be a bad drive (especially if yarn is involved!). Thanks for the info!

You are crusing on your candy corn sweater. It looks like it is going to be really comphy.

The Ute socks are amazing. All the colors. Very nice.

We saw a praying mantis this past weekend at my Mom's on her car tire. She was HUGE, at least the length on my hand. I should have gotten a picture of her. They are so neat.
