Just in the nick of time...

Hey, look! I finished something!

I did it! One of my 2006 resolutions was to finally finish a sweater, so I realized that today was my last chance. I found this baby sweater that had been waiting to be seamed up for months now, and finished it this afternoon. Yay! I have knit a sweater! A small, easy sweater, but still! I'm hoping this gets me over my sweater-finishing phobia.

Pattern: Baby Kimono from Mason-Dixon Knitting
Yarn: Sugar 'n Cream in... well, something hot pink
Edits: I did icord ties instead of attaching ribbon. I think it's cute. And I couldn't find the book today, so if there were any weird sewing-up instructions, I apparently ignored them.

And on Friday night, I finally finished my Secret Santa scarf:

Pattern: Reversible Cable Scarf from Cables Untangled
Yarn: Bartlett Yarns Fisherman 2-Ply in green heather
Edits: Just ended a bit sooner than the pattern said, but I think it was long enough.
Comments: Loved this pattern! It's easy to memorize but held my interest, and it looks great. Will definitely be doing this again.

The mother of the baby who receives that sweater won't lose her! It's nice to see baby stuff done in a color other than pastels. Love the scarf -- I'm going to have to get that book.

Happy New Year to you and Dewey.

The kimono is ADORABLE.
