Done!

I finished Oliver this week after all. I know, I know. I should have been concentrating on homework/the paper/the final, but I promise I did work on them as well.

I took a picture of Oliver completely done, but didn't download it yet. I think I actually prefer him with his vest open. His vest does fit, but I don't like the fairly large v-neck on it - it would have probably looked better with a smaller neck and more ease. I may try that one day in the future, but for now, I think he looks quite cute with his open vest. And I take the rest of the Homespun with me to KWA and place it with a good home. Yes, I cull my stash. But the yarn will be happier with someone who likes it. And no, Spook doesn't count.

I ordered Kath Dalmeny's World of Knitted Toys from Amazon in late December and they were finally able to get it and they shipped it last night. Christy let me browse through her copy and I loved it, so I was glad I was able to get it.

Now onto the Knitting Olympics. That's going to be a single sock. I can't really do much on it before the 15th. An hour or so at KWA tomorrow is about all I can spare from homework.

Meet Oliver

Yet another post from me today. Apparently, I'm making up for not posting earlier in the week.

I promised pictures earlier. Here they are. In the picture where Oliver's vest is done up, the vest looks much better than I thought it did last night. It must be how the vest "catches" on the body.

Now off to start my sock, then do homework.
