Spring has Sprung

Ok. Goofy Title. But you get the idea. We are heading toward spring weather here in Texas, which has made me reevaluate my (ever shortening) knitting time. While I would love to finish up Coquette, the sweater is slow in knitting and has a huge amount of finishing. I decided to put it in the knitting chest until this fall and get going on something I might need sooner.

The Blue Sky Alpaca that my Secret Pal sent to me just feels like butter. It has been tempting me, so I decided to start making my summer swing top. And, a KAL wouldn't help me get going. I joined the Summer Knit Along 2005 for a little support... I am hoping that this project is a quick and easy top, but I fear the crochet border. Remember the picture?:

The little loops at the bottom are actually the crochet part. Hmm.

I have knitted about 3 inches of the front piece.

Of course I need to get moving on my niece's baby gifts, so I joined a baby KAL as well. Maybe the KALs will keep me on track...
