Picture Pages, Sort Of

I promised pictures today, and I won't disappoint you. I finished the shoulder sweater last night, and even gave it a conditioner bath to soften the fibers. I'm hoping that the resulting softer, looser fibers won't make it too loose to be worth it. Maybe a few minutes in the dryer will help. I guess we'll find out on Christmas!

This is really the best way to display it, even though you can't tell what it is when it's folded up like this. The sleeve is basically folded into thirds and tucked into the neck. I wasn't sure if I'd like the stripes at the cast off of the neck, but now I think I do.

This is not an easy sucker to get a picture of, especially when you're playing both model and photographer. Maybe Dad will let me take a picture of him wearing it. I'm assuming it will look much different (and hopefully much better) on him, as we vary in size. I'm really eager to find out if it works, and if it's what he was hoping for. Think warm thoughts, everyone!

The only thing I'd really like to finish before Christmas at this point is my second fuzzy foot, in order to felt them while I'm at my parents' house. Please note that this is a "like to finish" not a "need to finish" project. I have a couple other things to felt, too... my Knitty pumpkin and the brown and red Tychus hat that was in the store as a sample. It should felt really nicely and turn out really cool. Maybe I'll get it small enough for Calvin. We shall see.

There probably won't be any more posts until after Christmas, so... happy knitting to all, and to all a good night!

The shoulder sweater looks really good! Even though the picture isn't the greatest, it gives a very nice idea of what it looks like. Bravo!
