Thar she grows...

Cathy's coming right along:

starting to look like a sweater now

The edges look so ragged due to the increases, though I am hopeful that the ribbed edging will look nice and smooth. Becky, aka Skinnyrabbit, has finished hers and (of course) it looks great and is making me even more excited to finish mine. The front parts have been a lot more fun to knit than the back and I can get several rows done while on the bus instead of just two or maybe three. I just might be able to finish this in time to wear it this year!

In other knitting news, a co-worker sent me a link to this today. How cool is this? Now if only she'd team up with Skacel for an Addi version!

On a final note, fiance and I are so excited as wedding gifts have started arriving in the mail. Though I wasn't so excited last night when I saw this:

bad UPS!

Thankfully, there was nothing breakable/smashable/bendable inside. They must have used this to keep the truck door propped up in the back or something.

Your bolaro looks awesome. You'll look wonderful in it.

So...what did you get in the box? Getting married is so wonderful but writing those thank you notes gave me carpel tunnel. Enjoy this time in your life.

Thanks for the nice compliment Jane- I am really looking forward to finishing the bolero. Didn't have any time to knit on it this weekend, though, so who knows if I'll get it done in time. I am also making my veil, so that's my next sewing/craft project.

The box had one spatula in it- huge box, little spatula. Glad nothing was damaged, but the box was also way too large for what was in it! I've got an Excel spreadsheet that I am tracking all things wedding related with- including gifts received, thank-yous sent, etc. I'm such a geek!
