Breathe!!!!

With about 3 hours to spare, it's DONE!!!!

(Every single picture had an absolutely horrible flash off of my glasses. Hence, the cropping...) This is Louisa Harding's "Sloppy Joe" from her new book that's coming out next month; I used 11 balls of Wool of the Andes, and it took 18 days. It has to be in Washington very soon, so I'm going to block it out tonight and mail it Friday. It should be in the next KnitPicks catalog.

I am sooooo glad that this sweater is done! That's 2 big sweater projects in the last 6 weeks...

Aside to Bridget: I'm going to miss you!!! You always had confidence in my ability to get these projects done on a tight deadline, and I appreciate that!!

Now it's time to start my Christmas knitting...

Woohoo! Congratulations on getting it done! The last thing you probably want to do is knit another one, but it looks and fits so nicely, it's too bad you don't have one for yourself :)

I just read your Knitting Camp 2006 entry--fabulous. I went to the only fall camp they every had, in 2002, and loved it. It actually snowed and everyone went outside to pose in the snow.
