All Done.

Dear Mom,
All done! Your mohair sweater is off my needles, washed and dry. Elle is wearing it until the next time I see you.This sweater is as light as a feather and softsoftsoft.

I hope it fits and is what you wanted it to be. I certainly enjoyed making it for you.

I rarely find myself confronted with the dilemma of what to knit next, but this is exactly where I am. Usually I am knitting away full speed ahead and planning the next project. Nothing really excites me right now. Last night I cast on April's Socks during Dancing with the Stars and knit through that sad Butler Basketball game.

This is Vesper Sock yarn- called Great Googlie Moogle. I put a purl row in there and now I don't know why I thought that would be a fun idea. I may rip back.

I'll go hang out with my yarn. That should shake off this funk. If nothing else, I know I can find a shawl that needs to be finished.....and a scarf.....and another shawl.....and a sweater......
Love,
Kim

That is so beautiful! I'm thinking of knitting something similar for soon-to-be daughter-in-law to wear after the wedding ceremony. The wedding is first weekend of October - outside here at the farm, so it could be chilly after the sun goes down.
