An FO!Picture 344

Shocking isn’t it? If you saw the Ravelry input you’d know that this little number took 11 months! Oh my goodness.

Despite how long I took, I’m really happy with this sweater. It’s cozy, it feels good, it hangs well and the button holes worked! What next for my knitting?

Wellllll – if you believe it, I joined NaKniSweMo. Which is National Knit a Sweater in a Month. I seriously need to get faster – let’s see if I can do it!

Nothing’s too flattering when you have this shape but…I’m still pleased. And yes, it’s missing a button. I bought 2 packets of buttons but when I got home I had 1 packet. Irritating. So now I’ll be making another trip to the store. Blergh.

It’s hard enough taking a picture of yourself in a mirror – one that is somewhat complimentary! But add to that an eye-bending blend of purples and…this is the clearest shot I got.

Scanning the HorizonI am knitting like a fiend while watching Seasons 1&2 of Battlestar Galactica. I’m so glad I didn’t watch this live and don’t have to wait! It’s amazing to see local places showing up – Gaius Baltar’s beach house is not far from where we camp each year – recognize that horizon?

bsg_1589 Ok, so their resolution is much better…the house they shot this from is just 20 min from here. Makes me almost wish I’d known about it at the time…

When I was a kid I loved the  original Battlestar — I know, total cheese. I had a major crush on Starbuck  and I loved this little guy:  Whoo boy was I afraid of those Cylons! I would watch each Sunday afternoon but most of the time I was regretting my choice! Then again, I was 5….

 Here’s my finished cuff, resting beneath the Engelman’s Ivy. I love this time of year!

Tonight I’ll finish Season 2 and cast on the sleeves for my February Lady’s Sweater.  My goodness, what if I finish something?!
