24 October 2010


Finished the sweater right after dinner tonight.
I was scarfing down the spaghetti just so I could get away from the table to weave in the ends and go snap a picture before the rain started again.

I had to enlist the help of a model so I could get decent pics.
Plus everything is so sopping wet that I couldn't place it on the fence or anything like that to get a pic.
 The going rate for a modeling job around here is steep right now.  I had to pay two pumpkin chocolate chip cookies to get the job done.  Highway robbery I tell you.
Apparently I was paying for the 'hamming it up' session also.

I'm so glad this is finished.  It's very warm and comfy.  It's going to be great for the chilly days ahead.
Now I'm off to go start a hat that someone requested.  More on that later.
I'm going to go get comfy, cozy, wrap up in a blanket before I start another project.


  1. It looks really comfortable and snuggly :) I love sweaters that just make you want to wear them.

    Congratulations on the great finish :)

  2. It looks great! Wonderful color and super good modelling job!

  3. Oh, this is truly fabulous. I know you're going to love this sweater. I think the modeling job was worth the two cookies and a glass of milk. :-) Looks like someone's kid is getting awfully tall these days! Great work, Kar.

  4. Oh Kar, it looks awesome. SOOOO comfy.

  11. Yay to cozy projects that turn out perfect and in time for cooler weather that is sure to come. It looks great Kar I really like the color you chose. IS there anything better than a hand knitted sweater? Nope not for me Love them!

  12. The sweater looks great -- and your model did a fabulous job. My 17-year old daughter/model doesn't want her face in my blog (so we must shoot faceless pictures).

    Sincerely - Trish
