Great job!  I had thought of doing this pattern, but after reading your blog about all the picking up you have to do, I don't think I will knit it after all.  I hate picking up!   

I'm sure your mom will love it.

Thanks for the great feedback, you guys! 

I don't really want scare anyone away from knitting this bolero up.  I mean, the pattern is by the one and only Debbie Bliss, for God's sake.  Who am I to bitch about anything she does? 

 It's just that from my personal experience, I've learn that I DESPISE finishing to no end.  Especially picking up stitches.  If that really isn't a big deal for you, then by all mean go for it.  I actually know gals that dont mind and even like finishing.  It's apparently "nice and relaxing" and a "nice change of pace." (What?)

So yeah, what the hell do I know?    Huh  <--- See?
