Done Da Done Done Dooooone

Pattern: Minisweater aka boobholder
Yarn used: Knitpicks Andean Silk
Colorway: Barn Red
Skeins used: < 4 total

Finishing knitted items ROCKS!!!! Especially when they fit. I love love love this pattern and the yarn is soft as a baby's bum. Glampyre's Minisweater in Knitpicks Andean Silk. Usually I dread the weekend being over, but I'm actually looking forward to Monday so that I can wear it to work and show off. No one at my office is crafty so they go apeshit when I show them something I've knitted. They have no idea that I am a total novice compared to a lot of people but I'm certainly not going to point that out. The praise can be slightly embarrasing but I must admit I eat it up!

Also on the finished plate is an Irish Hiking Scarf that I whipped up for my 6-year old niece, Grace. II omitted a cable repeat to make it skinnier. It was actually supposed to be an Xmas pressie for my Sister-In-Law but I ran out of yarn. The scarf would've been far too short for an adult but it's the perfect length for Gracie. Made with Lion Brand Pound of Love.

And last but not least is a pair o' Irish Hiking Wristwarmers for my other niece, Ashleigh. I made them for her on my recent visit to Utah. She wore them day and night. Seriously...she wore them to bed. There's no greater feeling than seeing someone wear the shit out of something you've knitted for them.

Your mini sweater looks great. You may say you're a novice but that pattern was the first one I tried when I started to knit and I couldn't get it right =)

I have like five skeins of that yarn, now I know what to do with it.

I have to say the wristwarmers are very appealing to me! You're mini sweater is "très très joli"! Have fun showing it off tomorrow ;-)
