While I waited for the yarn to be shipped in order to start on my sweater, I entertained myself with some instant gratification knitting projects.
Using colorful cotton yarn, I knitted a few dish rags as per Mason-Dixon Knitting. They turned out lovely.
And then one day I came home to find a box containing luscious yarn. I immediately started on the sweater (Cate, by Kim Hargreaves). The yarn is lovely to work with. I also found matching buttons for one dollar. Unfortunately you can't see how well they match on the picture below, since they are a bit shiny and reflect the flashlight.
I'll keep you posted on my progress. Can't wait to wear this.
I also want to take a moment to share with you that my smarty-pants husband (who is currently studying law) got an A+ on his midterm exam. He had the highest score in class.
We put his grade on the fridge. I am sooo proud of him. Congrats, honey!
