the Finish Line!!!!

The Sweater is...


I finished the front ribbing last night and put the buttons on this morning. Em couldn't wait to get finished with all her work today so that she could try it out in the cool Fall air. I think that Glenn was even happy to know last night that it was done. Brenna was jigging around when Em put it on. Probably only because she knows that now I can start on her sweater. :) But she was so kind in telling Em that hers was so beautiful and it looked wonderful on her. Brenna is always so complimentary towards every one. She's my positive little one around here.

So without further adue, (because I know you have been waiting also)

the Sweater!!!

Miss Em dancing and hopping with joy!!! (So am I!!!) :)

Well, tonight after dinner, Brenna's will be started. She sat and helped me wind her yarn just a bit ago. I thought she was going to hurt herself with all the squealing about how beautiful her yarn was. She gets so excited. It just makes you crack a smile watching her.

I have to say that even with all the problems with the pattern, I like the sweater. It was easy to do (if all the information would have been given to begin with). I love the Red Heart Heart & Sole sock yarn. I will surely be buying more of that to make future socks. It's wonderful to knit with and all the color choices can get a girl in trouble. :) I can't wait to see how Brenna's sweater knits up with it. I was a wee bit excited when seeing how the colors were winding together earlier. I'm a tad bit jealous actually. Maybe I need to find a sweater that I can knit with 2 strands of sock yarn to fit me. Hmmm....

I must go. I have just been called out to the backyard to save two little girls from a spider that is the size of a Great Dane, supposedly.

Hope all this waiting was worth it. Nothing like a temper mental project to make you pee your pants with suspense!

Toodle Loo!!!!

(Just letting you know that the spider was HUGE!! The body alone was the size of a half dollar! And sorry to tell you, I did get rid of it. There is no way I was letting that thing creep around the yard just waiting to pounce on me the next time I went outside. I've got the hebbie jeebies now!!! FAB!!!)
