Debblie Bliss Baby Cable Sweater

I am loving my Thanksgiving break from work! The idea of mandatory shut-down is weird, but I certainly enjoy the time off! I am trying to finish the Debbie Bliss Baby Cable Sweater that I started two years ago. I had many many balls of green yarn and didnt know what to do with it. This baby sweater seemed like the perfect project at the time. The cable pattern makes this project a bit difficult, but I like the way it looks right now.

The sweater (front & back)

The sleeve

I tried to make the sleeves using short-rows, but didn't like the way it looked, so I am knitting the sleeve separatly as shown above.

Uncommon Wristlets Hairpin Lace Wristlet

I finished my mom's shawl and started this new project (Uncommon Wristlets by Stitch Diva Studo). I picked up this pattern and the yarn from Stitch West 2009. By the way, does anyone know why Blogspot always upload my pictures upside down!? So annoying... Anyway, here are some pictures.

The woman at Stitch West this year had it on and it looke gorgeous on her. 

I am also interested in the newest Endless Knitted Cardi Shawl. Has anyone made it?

Here are some pictures of the shawl that I mentioned a few days ago. I made my mom put it on so I can take a few pictures. I think it looks gorgeous on her :)
