....Knitter and Finished Object. Woo frigging HOOOO!!!! I am so incredibly proud of myself for finishing this one. This poor dear was lolling around in the graveyard with only one arm, for about a month. I took pity on it yesterday and brought it out to give it the sleeve it so desperately deserved. To top it off (because I was feeling especially guilty) I gave it a lovely steam bath to polish off it's stitches. It was so worth it. Blocking took it from shabby to classy. Love it! The only thing I don't like is the neckline. Far too wide for my tastes. If I made it again I'd change that bit so it was a tad more fitted. I love Jennifer Beals. I loved her in Flashdance. I highly doubt she ever danced around the stage in her tights, having water thrown on her, whilst wearing her black tights and 100% wool, long -sleeved sweater.
Pattern: Boatneck Bluebell Sweater, from Fitted Knits
Yarn: Patons Classic Merino in Bright Red - 4 Skeins
P.S. I don't know why some of my photos look blurry when I post them to my blog. If you click on the photos, they come up nice and clear. If anyone knows how to fix that I'd be one happy girl if they told me the trick.

It made MY day.

From the photo, one could almost be led to believe that the never-ending ripple is almost done. Alas, it is not. Soon though. I think I only have about 12 inches until it's the length I want. I only drag this thing out when I'm feeling guilty. My 11-year old daughter will give me a look that says, "I'll be married and having babies before this damn blanket's finished", and then out comes the ripple for an hour or two. I hope she realizes the sacrifice I'm making. I could be working on my Gathered Pullover, you know? Priorities.
