I know, crappy self-shot Android picture

It’s just what I always wanted.  Now I just need to knit the second fourth one.

I’m moving right on down the body of Sahara.

Say Hi to Pigeon Snow White, everyone!  Photo taken by Ladybug.

Actually, I’m binding off the body now.  The picture was taken on Sunday.  I think it’s going to fit, but right now it looks a little like one of these!

Happy March!  I wonder if I’ll get a day to wear my sweater before Summer hits.

 

And the winner is… February 11, 2012

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.
