I stand before you victorius! After struggling with this pattern for months I finally finished my cabled Riding Jacket from Teva Duram's Loop D Loop book. I wore it yesterday and got several compliments (Thank you Thank you..I made it myself!)
I also finished a couple of other projects...I'm busily working my way through almost everything I had on the needles plus some (got some orders for more doofy hats...interesting colors, we'll see how it goes)
My friend from high school, Cheryl, came to knit group with my new BFF Leslie and me at Knitter's Kove yesterday. I got her started on a stunning orangey/fallish soft scarf. She's actually knit sweaters before so she picked it right back up quickly...Go Al Barr! Dang I wish I had taken her picture while we were there. maybe next time.
