I’m DONE!! I’m DONE! I'm DONE with Timmy's sweater!  I’m still in a state of disbelieve! After about 7 months of working on this thing, I’m finally done!! And the final result actually looks like the picture! Whoo Hoo!!!

Pictures will come as soon Mr. Hubby wears the thing outside.

And also a "my-oh-my", I can't believe someone has the time and patience to do this.  Look carefully now!  It's not the real thing!

-- Update -- Woo hoo hoo!! Almost done! I spent literally all day yesterday putting the pieces together (instead of doing my taxes). It took about 8 hours to set and sew the sleeves in, sew the side seams, and weave in the ends on the inside of the sweater.  

Now I have to weave the ends on the OUTSIDE of the sweater then knit up the neck part. Hopefully I will find time to do all that during the week. It would suck to have to spend another weekend on this sweater.  

Now that it looks like a sweater, I'm beginning to feel some pride in the thingy. I'm also having hot and heavy dreams of my NEXT project (which will be for ME!!!).

OMG! Has it been that long?

It's been almost 3 weeks since I last updated the blog!  Not that I havent' made progress or done anything.  

Her's a quick run down:

- Tim's sweater is 90% finished!!!  I am done with all the knitting (save for 3 inches of the mock turtle neck) and I've begun putting the pieces together.  I should be done with the entire dang thing by the middle of next week (at the latest).  Pictures soon!

- I went to Stitches West last weekend, the...ah hem, how should I put this politely...wet dream of knitters along the West Coast.  It was held at the Santa Clara Convention Center, and was a 4 day all-things-related-to-knitting frenzy.  There were classes, fashion shows, dinners, speakers, and of course SHOPPING!!!  Whoo Hoo!!  

Here is a picture of a small part of the shopping area on the first, NON crowded day:
If you are REALLY interested (and you should), here was (is?) the event agenda:

I bought yarn of course, and took 2 awesome, awesome classes.   It's been a long time since I've been so excited about something that I couldn't sleep.  Well, I couldn't sleep during the Stitches event.  Whew!  I am so pumped about knitting!
