:woohoo::cheering::cheering::cheering::yay::woot:I FINISHED IT!! The cardi for my older dd - I think I started it in March - I started, after a looong search for a pattern and yarn (ended up with Bernat denim in kahki - which turned out just like I wanted it to!) then switched colors, so frogged the thing, then ran out of yarn on the last sleeve - of course. I even had to play around with increasing in a pattern - which seemed to require more thought than I planned - it was supposed to be a no brainer! But, it's seamed, with buttons, and ... if you can believe it ...FITS HER PERFECTLY!! Maybe I shouldn't be sooo excited, but its the first thing I've made for her that I'm actually proud of - I won't cringe when she says "Mommie made it!" ....

(Of course, a short while later, while helping to clean her room, there is said sweater, lying in ball on the floor at the foot of her bed :wall:)

Also got myself all registered for fall Stiches in Baltimore ... :cheering:I went last year, but didnt' find out about it until all the classes were pretty much filled - even so, the amount of yarn was AMAZING. I was surprised by how many classes were sold out already - Here's the link, in case anyone is interested http://www.knittinguniverse.com/flash/events.php
I might even get an overnight out of it - one night all to myself, to recharge my mommie battery - a night free of dinner, baths, bedtime stories and multiple drinks of water!! :woohoo:

Thanks - I just had to share my excitement! Anyone else want to share theirs?

That is so great!! How wonderful it fits her perfectly!! you should be excited!

I'm excited about Stitches East in Baltimore too- my Mom and I are going Thurs-Fri. We are really looking forward to it! (and we are staying there overnight- it will be nice, as you say, to have an evening to ourselves...)

WTG!!!! You know she loves it and has been wearing it if it's made it to a ball in the bedroom! That's how all of my daughter's favorite cloths ended up when she was younger...on the floor after she wore them!
