A Home for the Hooded Cabled Pullover KAL

I just set up a Yahoo group for the Hooded Cabled Pullover Knit A Long. I also ordered a few skeins of Sierra from Knitpicks in Tide and Mist to swatch for my second sweater. I like the Kool Wool and how the sweater turned out, but I'm worried about pilling. It is already a little fuzzy from just knitting it. I have one of those little sweater shavers that I think will come in very handy for this sweater. I think you run into this issue anytime you use an acrilyc/wool blend.

What an Honor!

Thanks go to everyone who supported me, both family and friends here and those who left comments on my blog. Thank you for Stephanie for thinking of and putting into place such a fun event. Thank you to those who helped her with what must have been a (cyber)paperwork nightmare. There were wonderful creative buttons made, yahoo groups formed, flicker maps created and probably things I was unaware of. Thanks to these people who used their creativity to support the event. I'd also like to thank all the other participants, and those who watched and cheered us on! I'll miss seeing updates on blogs regarding the olympics and marveling at the various wonderful projects.  Posted by Picasa

Photo Finish!

Here it is on the drying rack. Later this week I'll model it, update the Finished Gallery and UFO site as well as the percentage complete side bar. Right now I'm going back to bed, Yeah, it's 11:15 a.m., I went to bed at about 10:30 p.m. and got up not even an hour ago. Just when I thought I 'd gotten off with eating lightly and dodging the worst parts of the Stomach Flu it hit me with a vengence last night! So glad I got this done and on the rack last night.

I'll get some rest, answer some nice comments and other replies in my court little later today (hopefully). Take care all!
