Knit, Seamed, Delivered


Now imagine it closed with a pewter and burgundy scarf pin. Gorgeous. Sue seemed thrilled with it and I couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. The texture is amazing and the color is unbelievable. It's charcoal but it has a slight opal shimmer. I just absolutely love it.

I'd like to say I'll be blogging much more regularly now but since I've got about 20 large boxes in my basement that contain tons of goodies for the kids for Christmas that all need to be wrapped (have I mentioned how much I HATE to wrap???) I don't know how honest of a statement it would be. If you don't hear from me for a bit you'll know they've taken my scissors and banished me to a rubber room.

Kerry, the jacket is beautiful. What a great job you have done. I can imagine it with the pin too.
I know what you mean about wrapping. I can't say that I hate it, but it can get tedious when you have heaps to do......and I have 3 HUGE ones to try to wrap. They are as big as my table top, and too heavy for me to lift. Have to get my big strong son to lift them for me. hehe After all, that IS what we have them for isn't it?

That looks wonderful! It's so nice to see something so beautiful and so not scarfy completed.

I'd trade you wraping presents for your teaching me how to wrap stitches nicely :) Nice to know you've been busy making something of such beauty.

I am SO JEALOUS of the recipient of that sweater jacket!!!! OMG it's just gorgeous!!!! Kerry, you can be oh so proud of that one, for sure!

I hate wrapping gifts too. I'm not good at it, so I don't like doing it. Boy am I glad it's not me with a house full of kids to wrap for! LOL

Have a wonderful Christmas lady!!

That is a beautiful jacket - I hope that you got all your presents wrapped. (I buy bags so that I don't have to wrap as much)
