What a good snow storm can produce.......

My Glee is FINALLY done.....yes, for the very finicky, I do see the few minor errors, BUT, guess what.....they are stayin'! This sweater seemed to take FOREVAH to do. It should NOT have taken me over a month to do, I know that, but with all the crap that has happened since I started it.....well, it's a wonder I got it done in this time span! Between flu and flu and flu and pink eye. Well, I am dang shocked that it didn't get horked on!! The last time I did a sweater in this colorway, I spilled Cocoa Wheats on it, don't ask.

My only major problem with this sweater is the seaming of the neckband thingy. I have a few ideas on what to do differently and I am NOT opposed to ripping it out and redoing it. The other issues I have are not something that I would rip out to re-do due to ill knitting. At first I thought I had made a big error on doing the knit2x2 waist and then adding the little edging, but when I blocked it, I liked it and am happy with it. I just didn't like stopping the bottom with just the 2x2, it looked unfinished to me, now I am happy.

I think I will DEFINITELY knit this again, the next time out of something dark, like black!!!!!

I would have taken a photo while wearing it, but I am a little self conscious right now about some weight thingy I have going on......I am terribly bloated due to some medical stuff going on and there isn't anything I can do about it, but it doesn't make me feel any more secure about it. I would prefer a big sweatshirt and sweats......especially the sweats part since my tummy hurts terribly when I have any pants on.

Now that I think about it, sweatpants should be an essential part of a woman's wardrobe. Why DON'T we wear more of them......why can't they make cuter ones, and more for my age group and even older, instead of ones that are stamped with "SOCIAL CLIMBER or CUTIE" across the butt..........sorry folks, but the LAST thing I wanna do, is parade around drawing attention to my ass with words stamped across them.....ok, well, guess enough said about THIS subject huh!

I'll leave ya'll with this photo, it's me happily showing off my new knit........I know, this picture, YUCKO, but lemme tell ya, if my mum were to see this, she would automatically love it.....why, (cuz she's my mum lol) cuz she would say, Oh, Miss DebbieKnitter, your eyes look so pretty, or she would say, that look, it's the same one you get when your about to do something ornery.......mum's, they're great, our own personal cheerleaders when we feel poopy heehee!!

Well, that's it for now, until next amongst yourselves my friends!

Oh my gosh, I love t
Your Glee! It's going to look fantastic on you! Especially with your hair and eyes. You must show and tell us. How many inches of snow fell? It looks like a lot on the news. I hope all is well with your family. Just remember 10 days until spring!

The sweater is fantastic! that's the kind of knitting that makes people want to knit well. I really am strangely inspired by it.

I love the edging on your Glee! And I don't see any errors, so to my untrained eye it looks perfect!

I'm with you on the sweatpants. I have several pairs of yoga pants and they are my favorite pants ever.

Glee looks wonderful! And you're SO right about the sweatpants! Why can't I get a normal pair with nothing written on the butt?? And with no elastic around the ankles either, I hate that!
