About Me

I'm a forty something mother of two girls ages 17 and 11. I enjoy knitting and figuring skating. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was about 7 and I'm still "figuring out knitting!"

In late 2008 I started this sweater with the intention of finishing it with a KAL that Lionbrand was having at the time. I got the cable for the yoke completed rather quickly but was scared to pick up the stitches for the garter stich part of the yoke and put down the project for quite a while (the better part of the year 2009). When I picked up the project again I found out that my slip stitches at the edges of the cable for the yoke came in very handy and I was off and running again, until the spring and new projects and life took over again until I picked it up and told myself to finish it!!!!!!! I am so glad I did. It is stunning and I think I'll get a lot of wear out of it.
