A few weeks ago.....well, maybe months......heck, I can't remember, my Wednesday night SnB group decided to do a sweater. I had pretty much convinced myself that I would not knit garments that I would actually wear out in public, but when I looked at the pattern I couldn't pass it up. So, I bought some O-Wool at Keely's Birthday Sale and got started. (By the way, I LOVE the O-Wool). I am hooked. I love knitting it and it is actually looking fairly wearable. The dove lace pattern is a little messed up in parts, but it still looks pretty good. I am finishing up the edging today and I will do the sleeves next week.
This sweater holds a lot of memories other than being my first. It saw me through the Olympics......there is a huge chunk dedicated to Michael Phelps. It was with me through the DNC, Hurricane Gustav, the nomination of Sarah Palin and a few football games. Now, I am ready to start the Central Park Hoodie. That will be on the needles soon
