"Something" Is Nearing Completion



Last week I had the pleasure of attending the Knit and Crochet
Show
in Portland, Oregon with my wonderful friend Audrey.

I couldn't have had a more fabulous time! I took a bunch of great classes by talented designers and learned so many things.

The traveling part was interesting. I never travel. Hardly ever. Truth be told, I haven't been on a plane in nearly a decade! And I have NEVER EVER traveled by myself! It wasn't nearly as scary as I thought it would be.

So I'm super glad that I went and that I didn't die.

I'm also super glad that I had so much time to work on my "Something Red" sweater!
I'm almost done!




I only have to finish this sleeve and do the button band!

AND I also happened to find the most perfect button at the show!



What are the chances of me finding "THE button" right when I needed it?

That never happens!

Beautiful button! I have that pattern so will watch your blog for the finished sweater!
I found your podcasts, downloaded 17 and 18 - loved them, so today I downloaded all the others. You will be in my ears for the next while, as I knit!
Thanks for the podcast, and glad you enjoyed yourself in Portland!

I can't wait to see your finished item! I think it is going to be gorgeous. I may be inspired to knit something red, it always used to be my favorite color!

Don't you just love it when a plan comes together? It isn't always easy finding the perfect button at just the right time, I am so happy for you. You'll be so lovely in the red, can't wait to see it finished.

Oh I'm so glad you were kidding! I'm sorry, I was probably being overly sensitive about the issue.

In any case, I do like your blog a lot and will continue to read it! Thank you so much for your consideration and replying to my comment.
