So here we have my almost finished sweater:
Not the greatest photo, now that I look at it. However, it will have to do since taking the time to get another picture will cut into my sewing time and I would like to work on my almost finished ottoman throws.
I'm pretty proud of my sweater. It's flaws are subtle enough that when people see it, they will look at me with an impressed look on their face rather then a pitying one (you know the one where they pat your head and grimace slightly while looking at your finished project - or does that just happen to me?!) All it needs to be completely done is a good blocking, as the bottom seems to like to roll up. As you can see, (the awesome) John Robbins is giving me a hand for the picture but I obviously can't wear it like that. The hood also needs a casing for a drawstring, even though I don't want the drawstring.
I will set myself a completion date of... um... February 10th. Before February 10th, 2008(ish), I will (probably) post a photo of the sweater all ready to be worn.
On my needles now:
A kicky, little beret! I have been teasing my husband that it's for him and that my feelings will be greatly hurt if he doesn't wear it. However, he said to me this morning that if he has to wear the above kicky, little beret, then he will start making me clothes too. Do I back off or do I say 'Let the games begin!'?
