So did I wear it?

Posted by jackie blue on November 27th, 2004

You betcha. And putting it on and taking it off several times before actual Thanksgiving wearing did stretch it out some. And now, I love love love it. Except it sheds a LOT. Here’s evidence:
giraffetgiving.jpg Yes I know my eyes are closed. It’s the only one I have, till family sends me what they took. I can’t stand flash in my eyes and close them almost every time. I just can’t control it!

So my next project was supposed to be with the alpaca I bought in Rhinebeck but I haven’t wound it up yet, or really decided what it will be, and the Ribby Cardi pattern was just lying around, with the yarn, so hey. I had to start that, right?
Mmm. Sure is PINK.

Well, tonight is a movie going night and tomorrow I may have to go back up to New Rochelle to get the car that I left there on Thurs. (long story involving a transmission and my lack of desire to drive it home) and then work takes over, so I’ll be back in a few days!

OK, so it sorta fits, but…

Meet Modified Giraffe.
Modified because I changed the side shaping a bit, made it 3 inches shorter, and used a lighter gauge (but not by much) yarn. I am kicking myself though, because even though it was a lighter gauge, I knit the smallest size. Does it fit? Sure. Anything with ribs will stretch out to tomorrow. Does it fit the way I would have liked it? Well, not really. Unless I’m going for 50’s pin-up style, this is an awfully tight sweater. And on my winter curves…yikes! I’d better not eat too much tomorrow. Will I wear this tomorrow as planned? It’s anyone’s guess.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone. Thank you for reading my blog, sending wonderful comments and email, and for those of you I am lucky enough to be friends with, for being my friend.

Seems I almost have a finished sweater here.
The question is, will this tiny looking thing actually fit?

Warning, many photos ahead

I had such a lovely week cavorting with various knitbloggers over food, beer, coffee, and knitting. Here are the photos for proof. Sorry I missed a couple of people here and there.

And last night I got to spend a few precious hours with one of my best friends, AWOL from NY for almost a year.

Really, with so many wonderful people around me, how can anything be bad?
