Home Again, Home Again
I finished Coachella!! It's so exciting to finally be able to post a FO. Everything is so hectic right now. And I cannot wait to get a chance to wear it out. :) Now that I've finished it completely I'm totally in love with it. Which is perfect. If you want the specs you can check it out on Ravelry, or you can just click the picture. lol Again, I am totally loving Ravelry. After I finish this post I will use it to hunt down some yarns so that I can find substitutes. Can you believe that summer knitting time is half over already? Soon we'll have to pull the wool back out and start up on those sweaters. Of course, I have several sweaters on my list.
Tonight will be my first night back at the LYS, and I am ecstatic! In light of that, I actually did some knitting on the giant sweater. The body and collar are completeted. Only the sleeves are left! Suddenly I am thinking that another FO is right around the corner. It will be so great to check that off my list too. Since it's been kind of hovering. Not to mention I felt bad that I had used up all of the store credit that I was given in payment.
Oh, and I pulled Mom's top back out of the bucket again today. *sigh* I had almost forgotten how much I loathed that Berroco Gem. It's agony. So slippery and fiddly. >.< The front (which I am knitting now) is about 10". Only 5 to go before I start shaping the armholes. Which are like...7" or something. So the whole thing totals about 22". Which means, basically, I'm almost halfway through. Then comes the seaming and weaving in ends. All that finishing stuff. No pictures of that, but here is the super cute dress my MIL bought for me.
