It's FO Friday again! The day of the week that most inspires me to leave my integrity in the dust. Here I am, playing along with a post, and I'm still (kinda) not done. Boo. I had 2 whole days to install my zipper, which I figured would be no problem with my knitting guru neighbor and her trusty sewing machine.
Turns out she wasn't home, then the ladies in my knitting group disapproved en masse of a machine-installed zipper. Apparently, it's not what you do. Who knew? Not me, that's for sure. So here we are late on Thursday night, with the zipper pinned into the sweater and Mr. Right carefully tucked inside. I think it looks pretty good...
Of course, it'll look a bit better once it's actually done, but I'm going to give myself the weekend to try and sew it in for reals. You guys still respect me, right?
In other news, I took the afternoon off yesterday to go to lunch with my knitting group and then sit around all afternoon chatting and knitting. It was really, really fun. And I got a fair amount done on the cable lace vest, though with all that chatting-while-lace-knitting, there was quite a bit of tinking going on, too. I finished the bottom section though and got a few short rows under my belt while I had folks to hold my hand. Turns out they're not so bad. Yay!
Go check out Tami's blog, where loads of other folks have posted their latest finished objects, which are all probably more finished than mine.
Happy Almost Weekend!
