Red and Gold
Despite having a cat that claimed Stilwell for her bed on Saturday evening, I did manage to finish my Olympic sweater on time. I wore it to the shop party on Sunday and sewed buttons on and blocked during Closing Ceremonies. I’m hoping for a photo shoot once it’s dry.
I also sewed buttons on to the February Baby Sweater in time to give it to the recipient on Friday night.
I’m quite pleased with the finished sweater: it’s so sweet! The recipient also loved it. I was surprised by how touched he was upon receiving it, as he’s a fairly macho kind of guy.
All of my research on this pattern before and during knitting has made me think that I’d really like to teach a class on it this summer.
