Lots of Fibery Goodness!

I have been so super busy these past few days, that I finally found a moment to load some pictures and post! My mom was here last week and we painted up a storm, but we made some great progress on the house! But, 2 fabulous packages arrived for me today....

I also got this!

Cascade Superwash for a baby bunting that I am test knitting for Jen at Figheadh. I'm so excited to work on it. I've decided to make this my Knitting Olympics project. I think the biggest challenge for me will be to stick with it and finish it in the 2 weeks and not get distracted by other projects or the house.

Oh, and yes, sleeve island and I are still BFF. We've got 13 inches, which means 5 more to go - thank goodness!!!! I would love to finish it and wear it as I cast on during the Olympics.

Have a wonderful day everyone and Olive says hello (or bark in her language)!

Hey Gracie -- your cardigan looks marvelous! I think I remember seeing what you mentioned about the cable up the sleeve, and it is like DB just inadvertently forgot to remind you to cable! Did you notice that in the photo the cable goes the other direction on the sleeve? I never did, even after making the sweater, until someone else pointed it out. Love your little Olive -- what a cutie!
