Two sweaters done!

Well, okay, not really. Not at all, in fact.

But look -- enough yarn in total to completely finish my sister's sweater and a beautiful cone of laceweight alpaca silk from Webs. They're posed on a tiny portion of our new bed o'mint, in keeping with the "If I can't eat it, I don't want to grow it" front yard theme.

I hope that green becomes a lovely and springlike Deep Breath Sweater, and not a screaming chartreuse one. Thing 1 muttered that yarn "wasn't interesting" when I opened the boxes. Well, she can just see if she gets to wear any results!

Goodness knows I can use all the deep breathing I can get. Here's the Things jumping their new "bike ramp"

. . . and I'm sure our neighbor is thrilled.

And I made the Stitch and Pitch gallery -- no one can resist snails! Must finish mitten #2, and I promise not to touch that alpaca silk until then. Really, truly.

I adore your snail mittens. Damn me for picking the colors in the book when there are so many more interesting possibilities. Love the deep breath sweater, although for me it would be the hold your breath sweater (ah, the tummy).

Oh, and go thing 4!

Wow, I wish my garden grew yarn like that!

The bike ramp looks quite daring.

I wish I knew you were at Stich N Pitch! Although I might have snatched that cute mitten from your hand!

Oh, I love it! Deep breath is a gorgeous pattern.

"Not interesting" yarn, eh? Hmmm. Not very politic for someone who might like that sweater...

If Lilah wants a bike ramp, I'm going to have to be medicated! Ha! I was just wondering what your neighbor would think about it.

Oh I love the colors. Very fall!! Can't wait to see them knitted.

Did the littlest Thing catch any air with her Tri?

Hooray for new yarn! The finished sweater is just around the corner, I'm sure. I really like the Deep Breath sweater, I hadn't seen that pattern before. :0)
