This was an epic “knitting every spare moment” project. Christmas was well and over, and this is now my first official “Aftermas” gift. That’s a floating holiday sometime after the new year…it goes on for days!
Anyway, this is a great pattern and I could see it done really neatly with the cables in one color, the background in another, and maybe a pattern/chart in the hood part.
Just glad to finished! Hopefully we’ll hve some more cold before the year is up. But I guess it’ll work for next year, too… sigh. I didn’t _quite_ finish it in the car as planned, but I did do the last few rows at mom’s kitchen table. I explained to her about blocking and I know she’s up for that task. She said she went to bed wearing it, which I think is high praise. 🙂
Ok, an explanation of mom’s pictures. First of all, in every picture I have of mom, her eyes are closed and her mouth is open. Every one. I have the same malady unless I concentrate very very hard. So the first picture I sent, of course that’s exactly what happened. Then I got frustrated and was all “Dammit, mom! Every picture…” This naturally opened the floodgates of silliness on my mom’s part. So we have:
Ha! My eyes are open!
