In the nick of time

Every day there is more eye candy to admire on the blog -- I am in awe of the beautiful work that has been accomplished here, especially under such a short deadline.
After a marathon knitting spell last weekend, my pullover finally has sleeves and a collar. Even better, it is blocked and dry, and ready to be delivered to the basement tomorrow where I'll be on the packing shift.

This was a really fun knit and I am determined to try more fair-isle garments in future drives. It is such an interesting way to combine various wools from my stash without resorting to stripes. Great motivation to practice two-handed knitting, too.

Some lucky boy or girl will really enjoy this sweater!!! Did you follow a pattern, or just go with the flow? It's beautiful.

Laura - you are amazing. Not only because of your talent and skill, but your generosity. If I made something as beautiful as that, it would be awfully hard to give it away!
