I finally finished my Ballet Wrap Sweater, from the book 'Speed Knitting'.  The sweater itself didn't take long at all to knit, even with extending the sleeves to full length and putting a bell shape on the bottom.  But the sewing, weaving in ends and blocking always takes me forever.  Anyways, here it is.





I like it, except the shoulders are bulky, and my boobs are a bit too big for the style, but whatever - I'll wear it anyways Wink

Very pretty. Lovely yarn and color. Is that alpaca? It looks so warm and cuddly.

Best episode of 'Cops' ever made:
officer- "ma'am why do you have scissors in your pocket?"
drunk lady- "for arts, such as.... crafts?"

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Wow, thanks for all the compliments - I was thinking it might look retarded, so thank you for affirming me  Grin

Oh and the yarn I used was the Bernat Alpaca blend - really fuzzy, soft and warm (and sheds everywhere!).
