pieces done.

Have a mentioned how much I love this pattern? Lovely yarn, stunning colours, and seriously, the faster knit ever. I cast on the evening of Sunday, September 13th, and cast off the sleeves during the Emmys on Sunday, September 20th. Yes, I still have to sew it up and add the collar and buttons, and yes, knowing me, that could take months, but really, the main knitting done in a week? A week where I was single parenting, (kudos to those single parents out there - I don't know how it's done, and I only have one kid.) was remarkably busy at work, and my kid started twice a week swimming, basketball and a 4 week Home Alone course. (a great idea - teaches kids what to do and when to do it when they stay home alone. They retain it better in a class situation than when a parent tells them.)

I wish this showed the colour better - it's not this bright - much more muted and the colours a deeper, richer tone. But it does show the softness.Off to find a darning needle...
