Okay, let me start of by saying, this was my first big project and my first sweater, it taught me A LOT and I now have made a few mistakes that i will never make again. It was one of my on-and-off projects of the summer. The pattern was Tatania from the Berroco website (but the corrections for the pattern can be found on knittinghelp)
This sweater is not very photogenic. I bought all of the yarn for it several months ago at wal mart. It was amazing that they had just enough yarn to make this sweater (like devine intervention) so i bought it all... I did not check the Dye lot and as you can see, there are two different colors in this sweater (it's really hard to tell in real life, but the amazing picture quality of this camera lets you all know my embarrassing secret right away
). Also, it is big on my stepmother. She loves the fact that she can be in any position that she wants while wearing it and stay warm, but i was really hoping for a snug fit... (she's a medium in everything else that she wears, but not this sweater
The blanket was one of those things that i started, got half way on, and never finished. My sister got married about a week and a half ago and I thought it might be a nice gift (I thought this the day before the wedding) I had a 50% finished afghan. SOOO, I hurried and made another 25% of the blanket that night, another 10% on the ride to her house (long drive) and the last 15% after the wedding
... oh well, she didnt even open her presents until she got back from the honeymoon. She hasnt called me yet, but i hope she likes it.
And now, I know this isnt a FO, but my cat's have been busy at work too. We have a new addition to the family. A little kitten!!!
. He is so cute, and now his eyes are open and he is walking around. We didnt even know that our female cat was pregnant until she started to follow me around like crazy one day (she does that when she is pregnant, she wants me to get her a box to give birth in.) So, I got her a box to use and 45 minutes later, she was having a little kitten.
We have named the kitten Wolfgang. My dad chose the name because he wanted a dignified name for the little tomcat and because it has little gray ears (like a wolf), AND he will get the nickname Wolf.
