    When was seventeen, I decided I wanted to learn how to knit. I looked up directions online, got really excited, and ran downstairs to find my mother and inform her of my plans.

    She looked at me, sighed, and said, 'Why can't you go out and get drunk, like a normal seventeen year old?'

    I'm still yarn obsessed.

Almost a finished sweater.

Emerald is finished. Ends weaved in (well, most of them) and everything. All it needs is a quick steam blocking and some buttons. As you may remember, I changed the gauge up a bit (4 spi from 3spi). I actually suceeded – it fits, it fits well, and I am in love the shawl collar (the short rows are genius).

Which I didn’t get till today even though I finished the sweater last Sunday. I had a hard time deciding on which ones to get.

I went to MJ Trimmings (next to Bryant Park – and it’s Fashion Week! It was nuts!), and found the buttons I wanted in about a minute ’cause I had already picked them out online. They’re simple wood shanks, and I think they’ll be perfect for the sweater.


I’ll sew them in this weekend, and have pictures by Monday! Hurray for finished sweaters!
