Drops 95-9 in brown silk

I just realized that I hadn't even blogged this top yet! Well, I think that's because I was hoping to get a picture where I was actually wearing makeup and had not just slept on my hair :P

But whatever, here it is. I've actually worn it several times (and even got some compliments). Harold says it might be his favourite of the things I've knit.It is growing though, which has me a wee bit worried. It's longer now that it was in this picture...but ooohhh soooo comfortable. It's like wearing pyjamas...but it looks more decent in public :-) If I was to knit this again I would go down a needle size...and I was sort of wondering about that as I was knitting, but to be perfectly honest I was just too darned lazy to do anything about it, and well, the result is still pretty pleasing to me...so no harm done.

I'm almost done a little baby kimono, then I think I'll finally cast on for H's sweater, which I was going to do immediately after I got the yarn in the mail...funny...I'm pretty sure I ordered that around March or April...but it's still sitting in a box :-)

Wow! I love the sweater. It looks fantastic on you. The color is just perfect. I also love the neckline. Wonderful job on the knitting!
I need to check out the pattern.
I know what you mean about time passing by way too fast.

Yep, it's time to pick a book on tape and get to Harold's sweater. Are you doing a Cobblestone?

The sweater is lovely. I bet when you wash it it will go back to the original size.
