Sweater!


It has been brought to my attention that I should hurry to meet my every 3 months posting schedule. (Thanks, Amy!) I thought that I had found someone who posted more rarely than me, when I read Ann's blog, but now she is posting every day! (Stop it, Ann!)
I will blame Mr Q. and his 2 secondhand laptops. He hooks up one and I use it to download my photos and then when I start to post, he takes it out of town and leaves me the other. Then when I put photos on the other one, he gets a big virus on that one, and so on. I finally got a photo of my pretty purple sweater:
















I made this sweater from a Noro pattern with Borocco Ultra Alpaca, which is alpaca and wool and super soft! It was my first sweater, so I was happy that it actually fits. I have worn it already to meetings and to Knit Night and I love it.

I loved knitting this sweater so much that I just bought 20 skeins of Peru Luxury DK from LittleKnits. I got the pretty fuschia, but now I'm afraid it will be too bright. Of course fuschia will be too bright, it's Fuschia!

I will try to post again sooner, but if I post before January, that will be pretty good for me. Hopefully I will be able to show some photos from our trip last week to Colorado where we FINALLY saw the aspens in full glory and it DID NOT SNOW this year!

That is one pretty sweater, and so-o-o-ft. Glad to see that you made your deadline, I will remind you again if I need to. hee hee
 
I'm a binge-blog-poster, I'm sure to slow down. Glad to have in some small way been an inspiration to jar you to post. But I sure sympathize with the computer stuff--ours is acting up now. AND, the fuschia is NOT too bright, it's just fuschia :)
Cheers. Ann
