This is going to be a very quick post. You see, this is Canada. And it's between periods in an Olympic hockey game. I have approximately ten minutes to throw this post together.
Before I cast on my Olympic knitting project I wanted to clear the decks in terms of projects I had on the go. I was especially determined to finish my Paper Dolls sweater that I started last December. I've been wanting to knit this pattern for ages, and when I came up short on yarn for Lucy's Fair Isle sweater and needed to place an order with Jamieson & Smith I decided I might as well add the yarn to knit this sweater since they charge a flat shipping rate. I'm sure I'm not the only person who gets suckered into stash enhancement this way.
Please excuse the headless pictures. I needed to take advantage of Alexandra's visit last week to get the pictures, and the only time we had to take them was when my hair was wet. I didn't want you to think I really had gone for that Snape hairdo!
I love how the paper dolls unfold across the yoke.
I was a bit worried about the size, but it turned out to be a perfect fit.
I'm so happy with how this sweater turned out! It should be great for wearing on cool spring days. Ravelry details can be found here.
In other very quick news - the third period starts in two minutes - Lucy was here for a brief visit on Tuesday. I can't believe how much she has changed since Christmas. She is on the move, which makes it very hard to get a good picture.
Gotta go. The game's back on.
*Edit!! I got so carried away with the hockey game I forgot to announce the giveaway winner. It's Christina from A Colourful Life blog. Please email me with your mailing address and I will post the mittens to you!
