I did it!

I finished something. Whew! Maybe this will break the finishing log jam. :)



Stats:
Pattern: Linea Rossa booklet (edited to be knit in the round, with top down sleeves)
Yarn: Jaeger Shetland Aran, 7 1/2 skeins
Needles: US 8

And look over at the Rainey Sisters' blog! Susan, sweetheart that she is (or maybe she was feeling guilty for being a shameless temptress? *I'll* never know *g*) posted a little blurb from Knitters Magazine about my pins. It's particularly cool, because I have yet to get a copy! And did you read over on the Yarn Harlot's blog that she was starstruck by Susan when they met? Is that cool or what?! :)

I like the shape of that - not too long and baggy. I hope you'll get some weather for wearing it come next fall.

Your sweater is absolute knitting perfection: the pattern, the knitting, the fit and the construction are fabulous. I have been so anxious to see it done -- now get to that Peacock Shawl!! XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX XXXXX -- these are my crossed fingers and toes that my peacock yarn arrives today!

Gorgeous! A perfect example of a fabulous knit sweater that I can't even get jealous over, because it will look stunning on you, and uhh, not so good on me! (this keeps me from wanting everything...)

I'm so glad to hear that word is getting out about your pins! Good news all round!

You have been good. You did good too. It is a great design and wonderfully knit. The orange color is perfect. The shape of the sweater is just wonderful. Oh, if I only had a waist! (g)

I took the link to Lana Grossa but didn't find that booklet.

Terrific designs.
