Last Chance

Just thought I would pop in with a reminder that today is the last day to comment for the Fall-O-Ween Blog Hop.  On Monday we will be announcing the winners of the prizes, so be sure to check back then to find out who the lucky winners are.  In the meantime, I hope you enjoy your weekend.  I know I will be, because the boys will be off hunting and my Mom is coming over to spend the night and tomorrow sewing.  I will hopefully have some finished projects to show you next week.

In the meantime, I finished up a knitting project.  It’s called the Kelso Cardigan.

It’s done with my new favorite color.  Surprisingly, this color has only made its way into my wardrobe, but not my quilting or my house.  The yarn is Dream in Color Smooshy.

I change the pattern up just a bit, as I used a sock yarn so it would have more of a lacy look.  The other thing I changed was the neckline.  It was supposed to have a tie in the front, but when I got the cardigan done and tried it on, I realized it was never going to stay on my shoulders.  So, I opted for the ribbing and buttons and now it stays where it needs to be.

Here’s my senior picture pose, minus the head.  There are lots of headless photos on knitting blogs, so I assure you, this is completely normal.

Lastly, the Ravelry link here.

Now, I’m going to cut out of work early and go enjoy this beautiful fall day by washing a few windows!!!

    When you are young and beautiful you need to put your face on. That means you. There is plenty of time later to be headless.

    Your sweater is lovely. Do you knit as fast as you quilt? Just wondering how long it takes from start to finish.

  14. Rene' Sharp says:

    This is absolutely stunning. The fit and color on you are just perfect. Your knitting skills are off the chart!! 🙂

  15. WOW – that looks fabulous! I am just moving from scarfs to socks. One day, in the far distant future, in another land, over the rainbow, I would like to do a sweater for myself. Just like this.

    What a gorgeous sweater! While I realize that you cannot answer all of the questions that you must receive, I am hoping you may be able to take a few minutes to answer this one.
    My daughter has fallen in love with this sweater. I do knit & don’t see a problem following the instructions for it but do not quite know how to make any adjustments needed in needle size & number of stitches worked when you go from worsted weight yarn to sock yarn. Any help you could provide would be appreciated.
