I finished it! I finished Grandma's Gift Wrap last night. I even had time to do a few rounds on a sock before it was time to go home.

Here it is, in all its glory. (Sorry it's so dark. It was close to 11:30 before I finished weaving in ends and laid it out to photograph.)

That's 41 stripes of 8 rows each. I still haven't gotten the hang of making the stripes lay straight, but here's a detail to show you how pretty they are.

The texture shows reasonably well in this one.

There will be more (and hopefully better) photos to come; maybe even some with the wrap actually wrapped around a person.

And I'm sure we're all happy that soon there will be other projects for me to blog about!

Well, I don't feel like that was very fast, but thank you for the compliments!

Bee-you-tee-full! Grandma will love it. Yay for FOs!

I found a free pattern for a dog sweater in Wool Ease Thick 'n Quick on Lion Brand's website for Jenny! I love me a challenge.

I'm sick. This yarn addiction... Is there a deprogrammer in the house?

Dad says you are not sleeping in the basement. I told him you two can duke it out.

Love you.
