The Sweater is Finished!

But first, here's our Halloween at work. We even got the medical student rotating with us to be a scarecrow - she did her best on short notice.


And now........without further ado.........TA DAAAAAAAA!!!!!


Ooh, that neckline is very ripply, but this is pre-blocking, and amazingly, it disappeared with blocking - who knew?! Here's the back.


And because I'm so proud of that Trinity stitch (or Blueberry stitch)...


And yes, I sewed the button on with 5 minutes to go before Pure Barre, and it was just a little chilly, so I wore that sucker to class! (I had thoughts of them asking me where I got it because they'd love to sell it in their store. They sell all kinds of weird drapey tops to warm up in....yeah, they didn't ask.)


And here it is with a collared shirt and work pants.

And here it is with an untucked shirt and jeans - that's okay, right?

So I'm deliriously happy today, but now it's onto a fuzzy pink hat! Have a great weekend!!!

I think this is the best knitted item you've made!. Very chic. Way to go - I'm looking forward to the hat!

Can you post about your sewing needles - I'm always wonderful what everyone is using (I like circulars)!

Love the sweater!!! and the costumes were hilarious.

One Halloween Vic was in a car wreck and was taken to the ER where everyone was in costume. He opened his eyes and looked at the male nurse, who was dressed as a woman, leaning over him and said, "Am I dead? Is this Hell?" He was totally confused and later said it was such an ugly woman he was sure he had gone to Hell.

Thank you ladies for the nice comments! Becky, your hair was a different color the other day - I just realized! Pam, I used circulars for this - I like them better than straights. But I haven't tried knitting in the round yet...

Robbie, Vic sounds like a character! That's bold of an ER to dress up, though, especially cross-dressing! I can't talk - my favorite costume is Cap'n Jack Sparrow....
