A Sprint to the Finish!

2741948098_03393f1c8a_o

I can't believe I did it!! I finished it at 3:49 AM Sunday morning!!!

Wicked.Blocking

Its all done blocking too! And I love how it fits!! I promise to round up one of my handy-dandy photographers tomorrow.....sweater is worthy of a photo shoot, don't ya think? I couldn't have done it without you all!! I kinda felt like I'd let you down or something!

Yummmmmmm

My fingers needed a break Saturday night and I needed sustenance too! I made the easiest, and quite delicious recipe from Hearthead! Poo cookies!

distractions

I had to sacrifice this week....very limited blog reading/computer time and I got these new distractions and had to resist them (until tonight!). Phew...glad the Olympics are over...I'm exhausted!!

Oh, and I might, just might, have rewarded myself with some of the new MadelineTosh Worsted yarn at Woolgirl!

Happy Knitting!!

Well done on finishing up in time. The sweater looks great - can't wait for a modelled shot.

And I also like that brown sock yarn. (and the brown cookies). The wii fit seems appropriate for next weekend ;0)

Well done. And what exactly is that edible looking yarn at the bottom? Mama Blue? Is that a yarn brand? Can you tell I want some for my very own?
