I got her done!!!!




I did it! I finished it a day early too! I would have modeled it but it isn't mine to model. God I am glad that is over!

Here is a close up of the neck


Over all, it came out nice! I wouldn't do this again though. Too many ends to weave in and I (obviously) hate finishing work. Oh and I also hate "get her done" but I thought it was appropriate.

Notice the actual spinning on the spinning wheel too! I see that I have a fixation with the color green and blue............(note the yarn in the background.... oh and yellow.......) All the purple is hidden.

What a weight of my shoulders. Done. Sigh....

What a cute sweater! I love the neckline. Too bad it's not for you, then all that weaving might have been worth doing again.

I know you are happy to have her out of the WIP pile. She sure is pretty! I love that Cotton Tape. I wanna get me some of that for next spring/summer. I want to do the Angie from the same book. Love it!

Tammy! Isn't there a song? I keep trying to sing "Sandy my darlin'" from Grease. Oh Tammy, bay-ay-bee, some day... Anyway, Tammy is so super cute and I can't wait to see her on. The neckline is pretty and I love the stripey colors.

Gorgeous!!! I hate weaving in the ends, too.

Posted by: April at October 7, 2005 11:24 PM

The colour combination is very pleasing. Did you spin the yarn used for Tammy? Who ever it is for will look hot.
