I have a finished project. I have a finished project. WooHoo!!! I actually finished Starsky on Sunday, but it has been such a hectic week that I did not have time to take photos. I kept waiting for hubby to get home from work early enough to take the pictures, but it just never seemed to happen. Then I realized that one we own a tri-pod and two our camera has a self-timer mode. So after about one hundred gazillion self portraits, here are the two that are the best:
Back shot of the sweater.
Front of the sweater
I have actually been wearing the sweater all week. I love it! It is warm, but not too warm. The only thing that I have noticed while wearing it is that the ribbing around the front and collar tend to pull the sweater up and make it a little shorter. I think if I block it again and with a little wear, it will soften up a bit.
It was a little weird towards the end of this project. I started feeling a little sad in some ways. I know I am a dork, but I was feeling sad because I didn't know exactly what I was going to work on next. This happens to me at the end of every project I do. Remember, I am not the knitter who has multiple projects going at a time. In fact I just graduated from only having one to having two, a home and a travel project and that is only because of this project that I just finished. So bear with me. Anyway, I was feeling a little sad and then when I was working on the belt hubby asks me if I could knit something for one of his co-workers daughter. Instantly I was happy again because this would give me a chance to try a couple of techniques I have been looking forward to. I will post about them later.
Oh, and by the way sorry about the photos, it was very early and I had no caffeine in my system, you're just lucky I am awake enough to have realized and been able to edit my jammies out of the back shot.
