the sweater

IMG_9863 IMG_9884

This is perhaps the most brilliant thing I’ve ever done.   It fits her perfectly, and she is absolutely in love with it.  Can you believe that I didn’t check gauge at all??  Or measure her?  I eyeballed EVERYTHING.  And I knit the pattern intuitively after two rows.  It is with great relief that I cast on the next project – the still light tunic by veera välimäki.   This one is for me.

In other news, I went hiking again this morning for two hours, and it was awesome.  I never nap, but after I ate lunch, I chilled out on the sofa, and within minutes, I was fast asleep.   Maybe it’s an old age thing because yesterday I turned 38.  It could also be the half a cooler I sipped 24 hours ago.  I need to build my alcohol tolerance because this is getting silly.

And . . .

      Thanks, Jen! I really wanted to do well by Ella and knit the sweater of her dreams. 🙂 Success!

      And you TOTALLY do not look 51! That’s crazy! I bow down to your youthful lookingness. That’s not even a word, but I made it up to give to you.

      Cheers! Nadine
