Finished Object Friday

Yeah, it is Friday.  I have been trying to speed up this week by a day since Monday.  My finished object is my Level Three Masters Final Project - the Aran Sweater with cables and a bobble (that is the requirement - you can do a fair isle sweater but then your hat has to have cables and bobbles).


I didn't take a lot of pictures of it because I was so afraid of damaging it/staining it, stretching it/ ruining it before it was submitted.  In general I am happy with it.  I am sure I will get comments and constructive feedback, but I am just glad it is done.  I heard from the office today that it is already on its way to the committee for judging.  I should hear in 10 - 12 weeks.

For all of you doing holiday gift knitting, I wish you well.  I'm seeing plenty of people freaking out on blogs right now.  I opted out of Christmas knitting and cards both this year and am much less stressed as a result.  I do have five people coming for 4 or 5 days between Christmas and New Years and at least 20 people for dinner one night, but that hasn't sunk in yet and I am still blissfully happy to have crossed something off my list.

Have a great Friday and head over to Tami's to see lots of great projects.

  5. The sweater looks awesome but, the class have too would take the fun out of it for me. I think I would find that stressful.
