When we say it, we mean it

See, I finished Short'n'Sweet, and it really was short and sweet. Easy pattern, NO seams, and took a weekend and a few hours to finish.

Here it is, all sunlit and stuff. I didn't block it, so it's a touch lumpy, especially thrown onto a chair.

Here's a nice look at the stitch itself. The color here is also very true to life -- so nice and rich and brown, mmm. I think it's also the only item of brown clothing that I own that isn't pants/skirt.

This is the most accurate shot I could get of it being worn. Of course, I was trying to take the pic of myself while wearing it (Husband was sleeping, and I was impatient), so it's still not great.

As always, the specs:

Pattern: Short'n'Sweet, by Angela "Lavonne" Best, from The Happy Hooker.
Yarn: KnitPicks Main Line, 80% cotton, 20% wool. About 7 skeins.
Size: Medium.
Modifications: Almost none. I made it a touch longer (half a pattern repeat).

By the way, I loved working with Main Line. Very soft and smooth and easy on the hands. Which i good, because I have another shrug to make with it.

Still no progress on anything else. I ripped out and restarted the scarf. But otherwise, I've been too tired and depressed to knit much...and if you know me, that's probably a cause for concern! Nah, not really.

That is very, very cute. One of these days I'm going to have to learn how to read crochet patterns....

Lookin' good! And I love the colour too! Sigh. I wish I could be a hooker ;0) I've tried and tried and tried but it's just not happening for me. I have lots of crochet hooks but sadly they only get used to fix up knit ladders!

Thanks for the review on Main Line, too ;o)

That's beautiful! I've been wanting to make this, and now you've convinced me. Although did it really take SEVEN skeins??
