It's sad that my finishing anything is such a rare occurrence that I get giddily excited about it, but I did, and I do, and here it is!
Adding to my glee is that it's something for my husband, that he requested, that he LIKES. Requests are so tricky. He likes it! He's currently using this very picture as his Facebook profile! I'm a good wife!
...She says, deliberately avoiding thinking about the current state of the house.
Jenn's mittens have been added to my list of hibernating projects, and frankly, the Hermione mittens will most likely soon follow. It's spring, which is no time to be knitting mittens, IMHO. On my needles instead I have a shawl that is double-purposed for the Sense and Sensibility KAL and RAL in the Austentatious Fiber Artists group on Ravelry and for the KAL/RAL for The Secret Garden in the Folklore and Fairy Tales group, same website, of course. The shawl is the Garden View Shawlette, designed by Tracey Withanee, and I'm pretending that I'm making it for my mom for Mother's Day, even though I know well before I'm finished with it I will be distracted away by the birth of my child.
I also made a dishcloth, which there will be pictures of once I've weaved in the ends (so, some time next year).
