Finally -- A FO!

Finally finished the child size 4 sweater for the store. The color is called Eggplant, a discontinued color of this stuff. The back of the sweater looks the same as the front, and there are two cables running up each arm. Here's a pic of the back of the lace sweater that I am also making for the store. You really can't see the pattern. I should have put it on something dark so you could see the laciness of it. Maybe once I get the front done I'll try it that way. It's "Crystallite Cream" in this stuff.

I think I will take a break from this sweater tonight and either start a pair of socks or work on something for the Dulaan Project, seeing how I have to have the stuff mailed by next Friday at the latest.

Dad got home last night. His operation took about two hours. He has to go to our hospital tomorrow morning and get the drain plug removed. He has to go back and see the plastic surgeon on the 22nd so he can check it and make sure it's healing okay. (It was the grinder blade that got him in the arm.)

Here's a shot of my Mother's Day gift - I finally got some batteries for it. Not a great picture, but it'll do.

Well, I had more pictures to share, but Blogger crapped out on me and won't upload anything. It says it did, but they aren't there. Maybe next time!

Happy knitting!
