and I’m taking stock on what I was able to get done and don’t want to think about how much I need to goÂ . . . a couple rows of Cassidy, which actually is a huge accomplishment considering that I’m knitting a huge size and I combined the fronts/back.Â I did maintain some decreases at the waistline but increased back out to my bust size.Â I want it fitting, but not fitted; if you know what I mean.Â I am absolutely loving working in the Shepherd’s Wool worsted and my color isÂ Great Lakes.Â Â Here’s the current pic:
Also on UFO night, we caught up on some giveaways.Â Jan had won Tom’s FCCTCC contest and she used the gift certificate toward Lorna Miser’s Faith, Hope, Love book and some yarn, I believe.Â I’m a little foggy after staying up a couple hours later than normal.Â Natalie and Jan had both won Knit Happy Notebooks in a pre-Stitches Midwest post too.Â Here’s a picture with Haley standing in for Natalie.Â
And, here’s the gang, happily knitting away.Â Its so much fun and I love having everyone gathered here.Â Haley took these candid shots and while everyone seemed to be smiling, I see she caught a few looking not so happy . . . and then some snuck out before the pictures even began.Â
. . . thanks knitters!!Â -Lea-Ann
