My Sweater

1. My sweater is done.  Even all those bazillion little ends are sewn in.
2. This makes me very happy.
3. The front edge and lace sections need to be blocked.
4. This does not make me happy.
5. For those that don't know, blocking is the process of getting a knitted item wet, then pinning it into the shape you want it to take, and letting it dry.  It can be a long process, especially for impatient people like me.
6. I wore my sweater today anyway - without blocking.
7. I love my sweater, and I doubt if the lace bits will EVER get blocked.
8. It is very hard to take pictures of yourself modeling a sweater.
9. I think I must have a very long torso, because the sweater looks so much longer on other people in their photos online.
10. My butt looks surprisingly good today.
11. My hair does not.
12. That is all.  Please enjoy the photos.

Nona,
I shouldn't be eating while blurfing! I nearly spit my sandwich over the computer screen!!! You are TOO funny! I love your sweater - it's amazing with the details - oh my! I can't tell where it needs "blocking" - so you've got my vote!

Hugs!

That is so awesome. I especially love the cabling *I'm not a very good knitter and don't know if that's the right term* at the back. I must get my yarn out now that we are nearing winter here in Australia.
