Happy Friday to you! I am writing this on Tuesday, and hoping that I am feel ever so much better by the time this posts at the end of the week. I have my first cold of the fall. Bleh. This little guy made us smile though. He was sitting outside the garage chirping away. The pic is taken through a very dirty garage window......but still cute.
What I am very happy about is the Lempter that I've knitted, and blocked, and have put away until winter, because baby, it is warm!
I knit the front and the back with the same cable pattern. There is the option to do the back more simply, but I just couldn't do it. I love the pattern too much!

I knit it with long sleeves. I didn't see the point of knitting a super warm sweater in pure wool and not knitting long sleeves. So I did. And I'm super pleased I had enough yarn!
