A finish

My lady sweater is done. Except for blocking and weaving in the ends. I broke down and tried it on last night as soon as I finished - hopefully blocking it will relax it a little longer:)





And I have something in mind for a new project for a friend. The first one I tried for her I didn't like the color....


I found this little shelf at a junk store. Seriously, the store is called "usefull junk". Todd needs to cut about 2" off the tops of the 4 corners so it will slide right up against my cabinet. And paint it- I know I want a yellow and red kitchen, but this is a little too red. But for $3, I'm happy:) And the little pyrex casserole dish? 50 cents.....

And the saddle? More than likely sold. They just want to make sure it fits their horse, which will happen this weekend.

My coat turned into a purse is coming - I have to wait for Todd to hammer on the gromets. We won't talk about the ding I put in the kitchen counter when I tried to use the hammer to put them on:) Hopefully this weekend. I now know why the directions said to do this on something really hard, like concrete.......

The sweater is beautiful! How do you get time to knit with everything else going on at your house???

Beautiful sweater. I think you should model it for us once completed.
Great bargains!

Your sweater looks so nice. What does blocking mean?
