my Ravelympic Sweater is a FO!!!



I cast off the sweater this afternoon... tucked in the ends and gave it a good soaking... it's blocking as I type and I'll get some modeled shots tomorrow when it's dry... I bought these buttons for it yesterday... hopefully they'll be here some time this week also..


Next I have to finish my Hilda socks (about 1/4 left of the second one) and my Archie Meets a Country Girl socks, only the second one to finish....


I don't think I'll get my ravelympic socks done... but thats ok, I finished the sweater!!



Oh and I have to tell you something.... I got a second job!!


Oh No... it's ok ......


it's a fun kinda job....


I'll be knitting for a lady (Polly) out of her alpaca yarn... and she's paying me to do it... now it can't get much better than that!!


She stopped by Thrusday at work and dropped off the yarn and roving... and pretty much said knit whatever... I have so many thing going through my mind... I know a sweater/cardi for sure and some thrummed mittens.. OOoo and maybe something felted... omg it's so exciting!!


I'll keep you posted on what I make... but for now I better get to my socks...


till next time....
