We won't even talk about the fact that this is a "third" sweater. If you have heard me talk about my "every third sweater curse", then you already know what I mean. Luckily, the joy of working with the Lanas totally makes up for having to rip back 11" last week.
And we have our first finished object of 2007!
Shedir designed by Jenna Wilson
Started: Jan 11, 2007
Finished: Jan 14, 2007
Yarn: Rowan Calmer 1 1/4 balls
Needles: Size 3 circs
I made this for DB's Mom, who unfortunately will be using the hat for it's intended purpose. I got the call that she needed this fast last Thursday night and I was hoping to get it done before I left Jersey on Sunday. I finished on Sunday, but not before I left Jersey, so it will be delivered this Friday. I hope she likes it and it brings a little bit of sunshine into an otherwise cloudy time.
Then we have some after Christmas presents for myself:
I scored some Yarn Pirate from One Planet in the Punkin Head colorway
And some new additions to the library courtesy of a gift card from Mom
I love books! I also got Knitting Nature, but it's still at work. I just love Norah's interesting construction techniques and approach to designing.
P.S. One Planet is looking for designers! For more info, go here.
