A Milestone



Guess what that is?

It's not to difficult if you've been paying attention. That... that there is Fulmar as in Fulmar BLOCKED.

It all started happening so fast when working the saddles, that before you know it we've got an almost completed sweater on our hands.



Little Miss Mac helped me pull all the pins, which she loves to do and she even tried racing me without my knowledge and proclaimed "You Won Mommy!".

This really kills me...color? wow. Above photos are taken indoors under florescent lights and now these below are from natural light by a window. So much closer to the true color.



Saddle are then inset into the front and back sections. At this point you can kinda try it on, what fun.



Then I picked up the stitches from the neck to finish knitting the neckband. Thank you again Trish for teaching me some great finishing techniques. I feel so much more confident now knowing the proper way verses making it up as I go along;)

I can't wait to see the finished project. The pictures are beautiful but still don't do your sweater justice. What's the next mountain you plan on climbing?

It is magnificent. I can't wait to see it in person. July 10 will be way fun. See you then. I hope there are lots of folks in the Shop when we're done with it so they can see you model it. We'll turn the AC way up.
