i did it! i finished the pinwheel sweater for my niece and managed to do it before she graduated high school!! it was a little touch and go there for a while because my work was so demanding. i had another meeting to plan and i had two weeks to put it together. it was a bit stressful (to say the least) and my knitting took a back seat to, umm, sleep but i'm getting back on track and with the beautiful FOUR day weekend next week i'm sure i will be able to make a lot of progress. i mean i wouldn't want to show up to the SnB with nothing new to show : D
anyhow with out further adoo.... the pinwheel sweater!
isn't it cute? i'm tempted to make another one just to keep around for a while but i'm already on to new projects. after finishing the pinwheel i cast on this baby sweater for a friend of mine who is due in december. i'm working with Lion Brand Jiffy so that it will be nice and soft and warm for the baby as they live in a climate colder than our own
here's a friend who came to keep me company at the meeting i planned last week
and i thought i would sneak in a pic of my Jerry (my more elusive kitty cat) actually curled up and sleeping out in the open (usually she hides under the bed). she's been very unlike herself lately (meaning friendly) and the last time she was like this she was pregnant... now i know i got her fixed (she still runs when i get the cone out) so it can't be that... hhhmmmm... oh well i think i'll just enjoy it while it lasts
Duck news: University of Oregon lost last week Boise State : ( we are now 3-1 :::sigh::: oh well, we still have a long season to go i'll keep you posted on how the game this weekend goes.
