The Best Thing About a Knit Blog.... the pictures of course!!

I didn't want to start a blog without the ability to post pictures. It just so happened that my DH gave me a digital camera for my birthday. I didn't ask for one, but true, we did not have one. So I told Kathy that about the camera and the first thing she said was, "Are you gonna get a blog?" Felicia was even hinting on her blog. Wow, what a difference a weekend makes. So here we are! A blog, pictures, everything. almost. I still have to learn to add stuff, but I'll get there.
this is a picture of my first, adult sized, top-down raglan. The yarn is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes. The main color is Tulip (10 balls)and the trim is Violet (1 ball). It took about 2 weeks to complete. I love it! It fits great, love the colors, and I learned alot from making it. It was so easy that I had to cast on for another one!

This is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes in Amethyst Heather. And I love it too! Can you see the cable? The first sweater was good, but maybe too easy. So I needed something to keep my attention a little more. So I added one cable down the front and one cable down each sleeve. I am just finishing my second skein.


And a knit blog would be no fun without a mascot. This is Majc. She is half German Shepherd and half Greyhound. She is 5 years old, but still has puppy energy. She is such a good girl, very obedient!!

Whew, 3 posts in 1 day! And I thought I wouldn't have anything to say! :)

That sweater came out wonderful! I love the colors. I remember you thinking you might run out of the main color - did you have any problems with that?

(And, it sounds like you got a wonderful birthday present, too.)
