I love it

Happy Friday! Only one more week until the 4th of July. It is a happy holiday for me, as my family usually gathers at my Grandparents house on the lake for the fireworks over the water. This year we are home again, and can join in the fun. One of my sisters can't make it, (studying for the bar), but my parents went and collected her kids. I know my girls can't wait to see their cousins.

I finished the Alice in Wonderland, and man do I love it. This was a long time in the making, and I had some agony over the buttons. 

I knit this with Valley Yarns Huntington (sock weight), in the colorway North Sea. It is a lovely color, and I'm pleased. This is the first piece of clothing I've knit in fingerling, and it did take a while. But totally worth it!

My sister suggested that I make one for my niece for Christmas. And while I love her, I don't know if I love her that much. So instead I gave my sister a knitting book, some needles and yarn and suggest she start learning!

Our pictures didn't turn out very well, the girls were too busy trying to annoy each other to bother with focus. Sigh. You get the idea anyway. I hope you have an excellent weekend, and a Happy 4th!

  9. Hello Andria,
    You really did a great knitting job, it is gorgeous, love all the details. It is very pretty and I am sure it feels good to wear it!

  10. Don't you love it when you finish a huge project and someone "suggests" you make another for them?! When pestered for too many socks, I bought a sock loom and gifted it instead!

    Lovely tunic :-)


I love comments almost more than chocolate. Now that is saying something.
