Knitting news and packing... (cross posted)

I finally have knitting pictures to post! Yay! I know I kept saying I would post them but things have been so crazy I just haven't had a chance to get a picture. So, here it is... a few pictures on the progress of my raglan top down baby sweater.

To the left you can see a full shot from the front. I can't tell you how happy I am to be working on the last section. I have joined the fronts, sleeves and back and am just working my way down to the bottom. It is all seed stitch from here except for ribbing the last two rows. :-)


(Wow! I'm so happy to actually know what seed stitch and ribbing mean!)


To the right we have a closer photo of one of the sleeves. I think this sweater is just so adorable and I love, absolutely love, the yarn colors. I can't wait to finish it and be able to give it to my friend for her baby girl. It is sized for a one year old so she may not be able to use it for a little while, but I don't think I'll be able to wait to give it to her. :-)


In other news, I found my passport! Yay! This is a very good thing, because I leave for Cancun on Saturday! Yes, I'm going back to Cancun! Wooo Hooo! I'm slowly working my way down the list of things I have to get done before I leave on Saturday and finding my passport was top of the list! I still have a ton of things to do and am not convinced it will all get done, but I'm working on it. I suppose I will have NO sleep the night before we fly out. Won't that be fun!

I'm sitting here getting ready for the UNC vs Duke game and am really hoping that UNC will play today. I was very disappointed in them on Saturday against NC State. They really should have played better. Only 15 minutes before the game. Yay! Go Heels!!

I almost forgot one other piece of news. I cut my hair. (Lana, I swear I'm not copying you!) I have had nothing but problems since I had it permed last July and I just couldn't take it anymore. When it takes 30 minutes just to comb out the tangles, that is just too much work. It is a little shorter than I wanted, but it will grow back. :-)

Here are the before and after pictures...




















Alrighty...I have to start paying attention to the game now... the fights are starting up...
GO HEELS!
Blessings,

That sweater looks great! I loved doing "top downs". They are wonderful beginner projects that don't look like beginner ones. I still have some yarn in my stash earmarked for another one.

And I don't think the hair went that short. I know it seemed like a lot, but really, it looks very nice.
