And can we just talk about pumpkin seeds for a minute? We all LOVE them in this house. They are sooo good. I just wish you didn't have to deal with the whole pumpkin part of it. I hate wasting the pumpkin, but I still have some in the freezer from last year (probably ought to use that up pretty soon...) and frankly don't want to go through the whole process of preparing it again. Ugggh.
Anyway, the topic of this post was supposed to be a sweater that I finished, so onward...
Here she is. Ain't she a beaut? (if I do say so myself!)
Her name is Aidez, and her pattern (free!) can be found at the Berroco Website here. The yarn I used was gifted to me from my awesomely thrifty mama. So, pretty much a free, cozy, scrumptious, WARM knit cardigan just for meeeee! The temps are dipping further every day, and I imagine I'll be wearing this several days this winter.
You can bet your behind that there are mistakes in it, so please don't look too closely. If you find them, kindly don't mention them, mmmkay?
Usually when I finish a project of this size, I'm at a loss for a while of what to start on next. Not this time. I took inventory today, and I have another sweater, two scarves, two hats, and an afghan currently in progress. No shortage of projects right now. No wonder I can never find any free needles when I want them...
I was going to show you some super cool wool mittens that I recently finished, but I forgot to take pictures of them when I was photographing the sweater, and thanks to that brilliant idea called daylight savings time, it's now 5:11 and too dark outside to take a picture. I'll have to save it for another day.
