Stick a Fork in Her

There's Finn, totally off the needles. She's taking a quick bath now, and then I'll lay her out by the dehumidifier and smoosh her into shape so she's not totally wrinkly, and hopefully she'll be dry by Thursday afternoon and I'll be able to grab pictures before I head up to Fiber Fair.

I have a lot of feelings wrapped up in this sweater, and I'll go more into them later, but I am so happy to finally have this done and I am so proud of the work that went into it. I just know it's going to be the perfect lightweight sweater and I'm going to wear it to pieces. I've also got a ton of leftovers-enough for another sweater! So I'll have to think about what to make with those :)

This was my last major goal in terms of finishing up some WIPs, and now I get to focus on what knitting to bring to Fiber Fair this weekend. I'm taking a class from my friend Shaina for her Busy Bee Throw pattern (What?? Kat? Crocheting??), so I'll be bringing the yarn for that, and I'll bring a new shawl sample (pink lace! Oh how I've missed you!), my Cormac, a new Sweatshirt Sweater for my mum, and some fingerless mitts for my BFF Caitlin. That'll give me something new, something small, something easy, and two somethings that I have to pay just a little attention to, which should cover all my bases for the weekend.

Linking up with Yarn Along


  1. I can't wait to see the FO! And I love the color!
    I just don't get crocheting after knitting for a hundred years the movements seem so unnatural. I hope you enjoy it more than I do!

  2. Fun to find your blog this morning via the Yarn Along. Good luck blocking that baby. I will look forward to the post block update.

  3. Oh yay for Finn being done and managing all your WIP goals! :) Have fun at the Fiber Fair!

  4. I can't wait to see this beauty blocked!
    Good luck with the crochet class- yay, Kat crocheting. :)
