I Finished Something!

Terrible photos, but I finally finished my first "real" project in ages, the Nimbus vest from Winter 2008/Spring 2009 Knitscene.





I started knitting the gauge swatches for this at the end of July, taking a month and three different swatches in order to make gauge. Persistence paid off in this case, resulting in what I feel is the first truly wearable piece I've ever knit.

Knit Picks Harmony Wood interchangeable needles are, by the way, worth every penny.

Cool! I'm hoping to finish my 1st wearable knit as well - "Miss Honeychurch" - a 3/4 sleeve sweater knit in... hemp! Little did I know that the Allhemp that you and I bought for the Everlasting Bagstopper would be the introduction to hemp yarn that I would need to decide to take a full-sized adult sweater. Hope to take it with me to Rhinebeck in a few weeks :-)

I don't care if you don't finish something, I didn't know you had a blog! Here I be!

Thanks for commenting on mine, btw. It's like coffee. Not necessary, but so nice for all that.
