I told you

I'd have some knitting to share with you. Here is my first-ever finished sweater, Cosima on the blocking board. (I realized while uploading that this photo makes her look very wide at the bottom. Not so, just some bad photography.) Hopefully it will stay cool a bit longer so I can actually wear her this year!

It took me a while to get to the blocking because I wasn't happy with the neckline cast-off. She had to take a time out for a couple of weeks before I could face unpicking the last couple of rows and re-knit them on a smaller needle. It was worth it--she looks much better.

I've been quite the ADD-Knitter lately. I don't even want to count the number of my UFO's. I've been actively knitting on Adamas, two secret projects, my homework for sock camp, and somehow I cast on for this just before I went to Stitches West for my train knitting project.

In the Land of Oz shawlette by Adrienne Fong. Socks that Rock Lightweight in Spinel. It's a simple pattern that's fun to knit. And I was dying to use this yarn--it's my color! How could I resist?
