All over but the zipper

It's hard to believe (for me) that this is done except for the zipper - I purchased one last night but it's about 3 inches too short. Way to measure! I'll run back to JoAnn's tonight and exchange it. But for close to a FO!

FYI: The Husband's suitcase/bag is still residing on the chair. Entries for the contest are now closed, but I'll keep you updated!

The Girl's party went pretty well. The staff at JoAnn's didn't seem to quite know what to do with themselves - the space wasn't decorated when we got there, they didn't have a large trash can for our use, and they kept asking me what I wanted to do. Um, I'm paying you so that I don't have to be in charge! But the kids had fun even though I thought the activity was a bit lame (they just colored a mask). Not sure it's worth the price though.

I still owe entries for "E" and "F" for the ABC Along and I've got tons of other information to share with y'all - bits and pieces!

Off to finish up sleeve #2 for sweater #2!

Have a great Monday!

    Love it! Such great colors. :)

  2. Oooohhh, the sweater looks lovely so far, and I'm sure the zipper will go splendidly!!! Can't wait to see it! I agree with you about Jo-Ann's . . . sounds like they really need to brush up on their party planning skills.

  3. Sweater is looking good! I entered for Wednesday evening so I'm really glad for me that he's still not opened them. For you, though, I have much sympathy.

  4. That looks great!! My cardi is forever in the UFO pile. *sigh*

    No way, still on the chair! The sweater looks like it fits perfectly.

  6. Nice sweater - sorry about the zipper.

    I am happy to have discovered your blog, as I live in Ft. Worth, too!

  7. Hi Jenn, nice to "meet" you too. I would love to come out to the knit-night. I work in theatre, so most evenings I work, but when I have a free night I will love to knit and visit with your group. It would be nice to knit with other knitters for a change. ;)

  8. Your cardi looks awesome!! I LOVE the pink and brown combo- it looks like such a fabulous fit on you, too! Can't wait to see it with the zipper! I goofed with my zipper, too, which was about 2 inches too long. I had to make a run back to the store late at night. :-P Looking forward to seeing the finished cardi! Take care, Jenn! :-)

  9. Very cute! Did you use a pattern?
