I've been completely faithful to Starlight since I started it - not only have I not started any new projects, I haven't even touched any of my other WIP's. This is like a minor miracle for me, and says what an enjoyable knit Starlight has turned out to be.
The sleeves have been worked up to the point of the cap shaping, and are waiting for the body to catch up so the set-in sleeve can be worked seamlessly a la Eunny. I am working the back and fronts simultaneously (but as three separate pieces). As of now they are just under 1/3 of the way to the armhole shaping. There will be a proper WIP post (with photos) on Friday.
An answer to Glaistig's very kind coment on my last post: I decided to wait an extra year before showing the hats to the Candy Plum owner. This will give me time to get a proper collection knitted up, plus get a real ("real" meaning not hosted for free) website working, business cards, etc. I'm (probably) not going to design any hats this year - instead I'll focus on knitting up hats I've already designed, a few of each in different colors, for the store. Also perfecting the finishing, refining some designs, things like that. I hope to have everything ready to show Candy Plum before the 2007 fall season starts.
The hat business is my main knitting goal for 2007. Other than that, I want to finish Starlight (my somewhat unambitious goal on that one is to be able to wear it by Valentine's Day), restart and finish Demi, and to make something LARGE - either a coat or a blanket. I think I'm going to need to take a Fair Isle class before starting seriously on my Mom's sweater. Hopefully I'll get a chance to do that next year too.
