Back from Shindiggin'

And so really I'm embarrassed to post my spoils from Shindig.  Not because I bought an enormous amount! Because I choose to buy one color across three bases!!!! I guess I really loved it
Here is one of the three Good Ole Days Sweater quantities, this one is on Traveler Dk and then a one off color Broken Crayons sold at a discount and a one hit wonder also sold at a discount! 

The worst enabling did not come from yarn buying it came from luring me to cast on when I need to finish things!!  I totally blame Betsyi and Knitwitchnj for my folley!
Betsy wore a beautiful Spring fever and I needed one for myself!!!
And Knitwitchnj started a really lovely Omena right in front of me so I had to make one too!
Next time I will tell you about my class with jcbriar!

2 days!!!!

Back to where we were last week!  I was worried it would be short so I blocked it to see where we were.  It is now perfect! So on to sleeve island!
Now for packing!! I told Jess I wasn't taking too much but the sweaters alone are too many! I need one for everyday and then an extra for good measure!
Shindig here I come!!!  I may not have completed the two sweaters, I practically knit three!!!! But I'm okay with it:-)
See you at Shindig!!!

10 days....

So I did get Rye done and it is perfect!  Here is an unblocked shot since I haven't done a photo shoot of it blocked;-)

However, Birkin,although it would have been done will not be. I thought that the 40 would be best, I'm not sure why I do this to myself all of the time, way too big!!!  I'm a 34 1/2 full bust and I was just swimming in this thing!!! So here it was

And now it looks like this!
I'm casting on tonight in TWO sizes smaller and two inches shorter;-)

Oh well, I really enjoyed the knitting of this thing so I'm not so sad.  I'm also getting rid of the faux seam.  Now the goal is to get this back to where it was today by shindig!!!
