So you know I finished the Tennis Sweater. But now it's official. Behold, the official boobie picture:

That's it! It's done! I have a few more seams to hide, but I'm not stressing over it, I can do those later. I knit socks so often, I totally forgot about the many hours I have take to seam these sweaters. Granted, I am very proud of the seam job I did on this sweater. I took my time, and I think it turned out just fabulously. I can definitely see myself wearing this sweater. But I am glad it's done!
For fun, here's a scan of my yarn room...
I know, that's a lot of yarn. That table is my working bench..yarn, books, my swift and ball winder.
So, I have all this yarn and patterns already. So where did this come from?
Did anyone else notice that black women are on the cover of both?? Very cool...probably the only time that has ever happened. But I digress..so what's that in the picture too? No not Meg. I mean, Meg is in the picture, but that ball of yarn, and it's eight sisters are for this....
Design #27, the Cabled Tunic. I loved this cable sweater with the split collar. I chose Cascade 220, despite the gauge calling for 4 sts/". With some help from Katie at Borealis, I hope to knit the largest size with a gauge of 4.5 sts/". We think that'll work. But I only started a sleeve, just in case it doesn't.
Hmm, what else is there to share?? I could show a picture of the almost finished baby blanket. But. It's a blanket. I think you'll all live....
