Having a banner year so far

So 2 months in and I must say, I have been very committed to my knitting and spinning.
As you can see from my meters on the side bar I have been up to a lot. I already finished my Victoria sweater. I still need to sew on the buttons and put up good pictures, but all else is done. I absolutely love it!! I also finished Juno Regina, 3 cowls, and 2 Chemo caps.
I have started the Larch sweater. I'm doing it in a light sport/fingering recycled yarn. Just finished the ribbing.
And I have ordered the yarn for the Slit shoulder sweater in Vogue Knitting Spring Summer 2012. My daughter really liked that pattern. I decided that I wanted to do it in Sport weight yarn not Worsted. She is like me. She likes her sweaters to be light and not thick. I chose to order the CotLin sport from Knit picks. I thought the little bit of linen would help to reduce the stretch, and it only cost ~45 dollars in yarn, so if she hates it, no big $$$$ outage. This is the first time I have knit her a sweater. So I'd like it to be something she wants to wear!!
