Holy Crap


I know this is supposed to be a "baby blog," but now that we have a baby, everything is pretty much related to him in some way, plus, it's my blog, so you have to put up with some other things. Like knitting.

When I say "Holy Crap," I mean "Holy Crap. It's done."

The project I have been working on since Finn was a blastocyst. The project I thought "Yeah, I'll have it ready for his high school graduation." Done. Off the needles, woven in, and blocked.

I don't know what I was thinking when I started it. I was seduced by yarn, which is usually the case with me. Find the yarn, then try to find the pattern it belongs to. It all works out in the end. Usually. And this is gorgeous. It's riddled with mistakes, and it's not quite as long as I had once imagined, but it'll do.
