Finished Object

It's not always nap time or happy hour! We do actually get things done. Jonesy replaced the fresh water pump yesterday (making boat repairs in exotic places = cruising). I worked a few more rounds on my cabled sweater (FLAK) for the orphanage in Kazakhstan.

And...ta-da...this is a photo of the finished sweater made from the big wad of wool that I won at the Knitting Retreat last fall. The yarn is a thick & thin merino wool that was dyed in 6 individually colored hanks. I had to plan very carefully on how to use the colors and the size (chest = 36") so that I wouldn't run out of yarn! All that is left is a small ball of the darkest yarn. Hmmm...maybe a matching hat?

That's beautiful! Ohhh... and on my wish list ~ along with a sock monkey hat...
Gee. For someone who clains not to be a "real knitter" that looks REAL GOOD!! There truly is life beyond socks!!!
Have a wonderful time in the sun. We got two feet of snow last night. Its beautiful but I sure would like a rest in your hammock with a pina colada.... The sweater is beautiful.Darrell
