Chimney Fire Sweater (Finally) Done!

Okay, okay. It’s been more or less done for weeks, except for weaving in the ends. But, as I hate weaving in loose ends AND it was too hot to wear, it’s been languishing on my desk awaiting completion.

So naturally I picked a 90 degree day to do it. Ha!


Despite how long it took me, it’s actually a very easy, straightforward knit.


I’m also still completely in love with the color, despite the fact that there’s a slightly darker band down the middle where I clearly didn’t match up the dye just right.



And now brace yourselves. I had Oona take pictures of me wearing it. She didn’t do too badly, but I’m not the most photogenic subject, sooo……LOL.



See the darker band? It actually doesn’t bother me one bit. Adds character.


And there you go. My resting bitch face. I don’t mean to look so dour, I promise!


Anyhoo, I’m super pleased with how it came out, and it’ll be perfect once the colder weather hits again.

In the meantime I have started working on some holiday projects to make sure they are done in time. You’ll get to see those after the holidays, of course. They’re a surprise!
