Incentives

This is Samus. I started it as my Knitting Olympics project (the personal challenge was tackling cables for the first time). Yes, it has been on the needles that long. But now I have two incentives to finish it ASAP. First, as you know, is Autumn Rose--I'm not allowed to cast on for my new obsession until I finish this. The second is that the Yarn Harlot is coming to town on Thursday. The Harlot herself, founder of the Knitting Olympics. Think I can sew on the other sleeve, knit approximately 57 miles of i-cord edging, install my first zipper, block, and dry this in under 48 hours?

What a beautiful almost-FO!

I'm happy I got to see you and Samus last night at the Harlot book-signing.

It looked fantastic even if it still needed a zipper -- I didn't get my books signed until 11:27 -- what a long night -- I sent your friend (I never did catch her name) up early for pre-boarding since the little one needed to get to sleep so she was probably out of there around 10:45

I love that sweater! I could not look away from it while the Yarn Harlot was talking -- so pretty! Did you finish it? I'll bet i-cord edging will look fabulous on it.

(And how funny that I blogged about your sweater and you read it -- small world!)
