What I did on my winter vacation

I didn't finish my novel. I didn't do revisions to my play due Jan. 3, I didn't work on the grant application due Jan. 2. I didn't get ready to leave for Nebraska, early as sin tomorrow morning.

Instead, today, I pulled sweat(er)-shop hours to finish... yes... THERMAL.

Ta-da! Tired girl in sweater.

I have to get important things done starting NOW, but as this blog is my witness, the sweater is done. I can move on now.

Thank you! May the new year bring decent tidings and no stains to you and your kin-nitting. (And decent tidings to the yarnless among you.)

Next post coming up: Lessons Learned in 2007. Watch for that, it's a looong list.

So glad you finished Thermal. It looks like a perfect fit. See, you DID accomplish something!

Ooohhh...very cute! This top is so popular, and I can see why.

Wow, it looks great!

I just saw your "Reasonably Hip" pattern on magknits. I LOVE IT! I think it's going to be a gift for my nephew.

Yeah, I realize now that Thermal might have been overly ambitious. Hence, my first sweater actually turned out to be Buttony, knit on size tens. Come check it out :)

P.S. Thanks for the first comment on my blog, ever! :D

Thanks, everybody! It's so lovely to have one's hard work appreciated by the right crowd.

Oh, and Dorothy, be sure to note the errata for the hat pattern, a few posts down.

I keep toying with the idea of knitting Thermal. Yours is very cute.
