Almost There

I don't have a modeled shot yet, so this is just a teaser. I'll do a real FO post next week once the DH has had a chance to try the sweater on. For now, what else can I say but "voila":

That's right. I finished Lismore this week. I wove in the last end (trust me, there were a lot) on Sunday evening, gave the sweater a little bath in some Soak, and set it out to dry. Thank goodness the sweater was dry by yesterday afternoon since we had a friend coming over for dinner and I needed my dining table back!

I have plenty to say about this project but I'm going to wait until the FO post. How about some gratuitous pics instead?

An inside-out shot or two?

Can you stand one more?

More on this project later. The DH and I are heading off to Maine tomorrow for our last round of holiday visiting. Our trip includes an excursion to Halcyon Yarn in Bath on Saturday. It should be a lot of fun. Just cross your fingers that we'll be able to get out of Chicago before the worst of the snow hits.

Wow! It's stunning...inside and out! Can't wait for more details and a modeled shot!

I hope you enjoy Maine...I grew up on the east coast and we'd often go to Bar Harbor for a summer trip. Definitely my favorite vacation spot as a child. I've been thinking I need to find a way to go back since it's been years! Enjoy and stay warm!
