The Burled Arch

Remember when I was complaining about how long it was taking to spin Maisie's yarn? And then how long it was taking to knit a fairly straightforward sweater?  It finally dawned on me that it took forever for her to grow up enough to move out of the house, so what did I expect? ;-)

We finally made it!

I took the finished sweater out to the barn yesterday to show Maisie.  She was standing behind the barn with several other sheep.  I kind of flipped it over the back gate to hold it up and all the sheep scattered.  Except Maisie.  She didn't even flinch.  She just looked very intently at the sweater.  And looked.  And looked.  No one else was in the least bit interested.  

I am hoping to do the "formal" pictures tomorrow.  It's supposed to clear off and be sunny and 44 in the morning.  Almost sweater weather :-).  In the meantime, here is a sneak peak...

This was the easiest blocking job Stella and I have ever done.  It washed wonderfully and fit perfectly so all we had to do was set it out, measure to make sure everything was even and placed a few pins, pink of course :-).  

And as a special treat for Maisie, I let her come out and eat with the boys last night.  Her Iknitarod Banquet.  Look how small she is next to them.  I never think of her as being that small.  My silly little girl :-).
