almost there...

Patti is blocking. Michelle asked me at knitting club the other night if I thought I would love this cardigan. My response was, "I think, maybe..." Of course I hadn't so much as thrown the unblocked pieces over my shoulders to try to get an idea of how it would fit. I had done WAY too much stockinette to get all disappointed right before seaming it all up, and I was too nervous to even check. So I figured it'll be what it'll be, and pressed onward. After a seaming marathon last night I tried it on and I don't want to speak too soon and say that it fit perfectly...but...

We'll see.

I'm just glad to finally have Patti practically finished so that I can now focus my attention on the Baby Cable Wrap. The color of the yarn is exactly what I was hoping for! I ordered Filatura Di Crosa Zara in what I believe is their cotton candy colorway. It's sort of purpley-pinkish and very pretty, but not too, too pastel. I have to get this one done in a few weeks, so it's back to the knitting needles for the rest of this afternoon!
