I suppose it was never a fair fight.  Hubby saw that doe-eyed model sporting the side-boob and said that I’d be crazy to knit anything else but Sahara.  I wound my 7 skeins of Cascade 220 and cast on last week!

Would you like to see what might possibly be the worst WIP picture ever?

It’s not even the right color – think more burgundy purple than pink.

Yee. Haw.

On the flip side, I discovered the LYS in my area that carries the KnitPicks cables, so when I decided that a 32″ cable wasn’t going to work with my 45″ bust, I was able to run out and grab what I needed, without being tempted to spend $50 just to get free shipping on a 40″ cable.  (However, I did also pick up a 47″ cable and some cable joiner things.  I just can’t stop being an impulse shopper.  Still, it was cheaper than $50 and instantly in my possession!)

I still think I’ll knit the February fitted pullover someday.  Let me get my first adult sweater out of the way first, though.
