Work in Progress Wednesday v.132

Hey y'all! 

I'm still here, just been ridiculously busy these last couple of weeks and so without much knitting time.  But!  But right now, I'm getting ready to head out to the airport to fly off to Stitches West!  I'm so excited, and promise there will be plenty of picture-ful reporting and even a treat for you guys once I get back.  So while I'm away, behave yourselves and go visit all the other WIPW entries for stuff that's decidedly more exciting than this. 

See you on the flip side!

FO Friday -- Sophisticated Edition

I know you've all been biting your nails in anticipation, so I'll come right out with it:

My Baby Sophisticate is finished!  Proof:

Thank you all so much for your suggestions about ways to make the sleeves work.  In the end, I had a very specific picture in my head, so I got myself another skein of yarn, then pulled out the sleeve and started again, alternating skeins every other row to better blend the colors. 

You can sort of almost see it if you look very, very closely but I'm willing to live with that.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out, though.  And I'm hoping it will be well loved in its new home. 

Since that's all that's really going on this week, you get a gratuitous puppy shot.  She's growing like a WEED, and while she's definitely not an FO, she is making progress (thank God!).  I think we'll keep her.

Even if she did eat my phone charger.

Have a lovely weekend, guys!  And consider kicking it off with visits to FO Friday and Fiber Arts Friday.  I'll see you there!
