Time just gets away from me…

posted Wednesday, February 25th, 2009

I can hardly believe it’s almost MARCH! I was supposed to celebrate my blogaversary in January, but it seems I’ve completely missed it! Oh well.. I had all these plans in my head for something cool to do, but then just got too busy to do much about it. Oops.. maybe I’ll make up for it next year 🙂

However, in the past week, I managed to go from this

Secret Garden

to this!
FLS KAL Finished

Angelina of Zen String suggested in her group on Ravelry that we should all do a KAL with her yarn in February.. and chose the very popular February Lady Sweater (if anyone recalls, I’ve knit a couple of the baby versions, including one from handspun yarn for my daughter, and another for my neice that I don’t seem to have blogged about) and since she offered a generous 20% off on yarn for the KAL, how could anyone resist?  I chose to make mine from Verde Worsted (and OMG do I *love* this yarn!!) in Secret Garden, which quickly became a favorite colorway of mine when I made a pair of socks from it during the Ravelympics last year. I got a very late start on my sweater, not even winding my yarn until the 19th, but just 5 days later I had my new super cute sweater finished.  It’s surprisingly warm despite being rather short.   I had hoped it would block out a little longer, but it didn’t really seem to… it’s okay though, because I’m still totally thrilled with it!
