St. Brigid


Dsc03871Can you believe it? I’m wearing it. Today. Right now.

Love, love, love!!!

This is just a quickie post with a couple of tantalizing pictures.  It took all day — ALL DAY — to sew on the collar and do the ribbing, sew down the ribbing, and weave in all the ends.  Man, a lot of ends, even though I got smart and spliced while knitting the last half.  But she’s done.  Alas, by the time I was ready for photos, it was dark and there wasn’t anyone to man the camera.

Thanks for all the encouraging emails.  You all made reaching the finish line even sweeter.

More to come.

  1. Congratulations! I can hear how happy you sound. Wear it well, my friend. She looks gorgeous! (Did you decide on the fringe? I think you should fringe….)

  2. It is gorgeous! I LOVE that cable around the collar. I can’t imagine how fussy it must have been to get it just right, but it was so worth it.

  6. AMAZING! I love, love, love it! It makes such a difference to actually see it as a sweater with all those cables! I can’t believe that you’ve really wearing it right now…I’m turning green with jealousy (I’ll be blocking mine tonight). You did a wonderful job. I can’t wait to see more photos!
