Time for Knitting!

It's that time of year, in more ways than one.  It is chilly most of the time and DARK very early in the afternoon, and almost non-stop football/hockey.  Oh, and pre-Christmas.  So that means it is TIME FOR KNITTING!!
Above is  20% of Stephen West's Spectra pattern.  It is UNFORGIVING!  Which means I will not ever be planning to enter this in a state or county fair, AND this is not the project to pick up if I am sleepy.  Short rows!! AND Intarsia!! AND size 3 needles.  I am pretty sure, however, that when I get it finished, washed and blocked, it will be beautiful enough for casual wear!
This is the beginning of a mystery project.   I am so glad that I mustered the courage to try a two-color cast on... AND to follow that by a slip-stitch rib.  Those Baltic knitters.... SO smart!!

 This is the most mysterious part of all.  With all those spikey sticks, I'm thinking it looks a little like sushi!  (But it's not!)
