Holiday Projects!

The first of many is finally finished. . . completely, totally, utterly finished! No more ends to weave in, no blocking to be done! What is it, you ask? A sweater for Nathan, Johnny's 4 year old nephew! I started working on it a little less than a month ago, right after receiving the fall issue of KnitSimple (Vogue's version of Knitting for Dummies, I guess you could call it!) I'm proud to say that I actually managed to complete a project from it before the next issue arrived -- I'm still waiting on that next issue, in fact! How often does that happen?! I think I might press my luck and try to knit a sweater for Daisy from it, too. Is that asking too much? (image is clickable!)

The Necessary Details:
Pattern: Vogue KnitSimple Fall 2006, "Boy's Sweater" Size 6
Yarn: Plymouth Encore, Green #45, 2 1/4 skeins
Needles: Sz 8 and Sz 9 16" circs, cable needle
Time: 4 weeks, working on and off

LOL, thanks, Sue! I really recommend thaat KnitSimple magazine. . . I was able to snag a year's subscription for 9.95, and it's the best 10 bucks I've ever spent!
