…knitting has been good to me this week. as in I finished a project, have another done except for 38 stitches to graft (coffee work tomorrow morning!) and we got a gorgeous shipment of madelinetosh, including madtosh light, in the shop today. and I got to spend nearly all day yesterday and today knitting with friends (and even captured one of those times with a photo – thanks, karen!)
the finished project is creature comforts, the current project crush at the shop (or maybe it was really a knit along, I’m not sure). several of my students are knitting it, too; and really, the knitting along was one of my favorite parts of this project. until I finished it, and put it on, and peeked at the back in my bathroom mirror. truly, the best part about this one is wearing it!
|thank you, sharon, for taking the photo – and the suggestion to hold my arms out 🙂|
now that it’s done and I’ve worn it, I’ll admit I was a bit worried about a few things. the seams, having it fall off my shoulders, or just plain fit weird. but really, none of those worries came to be. and I love the finished piece. I did make a few modifications and they’re documented on my ravelry project page.

more on the nearly finished project and what I’m going to knit with the madtosh light later this weekend…
