Samus is Finished!


At last. At long last! My Samus sweater is finished, though it could use a good blocking. That's okay, I'll block it after I wash it for the first time.

I had hoped and planned to finish this sweater, the first I have ever kept for myself, before the end of 2007. It took me a long time to make, two years by my estimate. I'm already looking forward to starting another sweater for myself!

In other knitting news, here is the fluffy scarf I made for Liat for Chanukah:


And here is the hat (don't have the URL, but the pattern is called the Blanche Hat, which appealed to me since my grandmother's name was Blanche) I made last week for my friend Miriam:


What's left on my needles? The second in a pair of socks for Liat (I'm working on the foot now), the second in a pair of gloves also for Liat (on the ribbing there...) and a bunny like the one I made for Meital not long ago, for a friend of hers.

Your Seamus is beautiful and you look great in it; blocking it or not. I love that color, of course. If I find more of that Turquoise Magic, I will let you know. You sure had your knitting fingers working overtime for Channukah.

The Samus looks fantastic! Of all your projects, I've looked forward to seeing the completion of this one as it is on my "to do" list also.
