{Hey Teach? I'm DONE!}

You guys are never going to believe me.  The Hey Teach cardigan I've been knitting since.... (looks it up on  Ravelry) JANUARY 23!  I finished it!!

There is nothing like a deadline and some to-do lists to inspire me.  I just LOVE crossing stuff off!  Most of the pieces were done, it was just the fronts that needed some help, then of course the sewing. The button hole band was cast off last night in time to snap a few pics.

Don't you guys think that that it needs some Harmony buttons???  I adore the toggles, but maybe the little flat ones would fit better. 

So... the Projects to do list....  Almost done!

1. Accounting Class
2. Icarus Shawl
3. Zen Cable Socks - these are coming on my trip with me!
4. My First Quilt Top
4.5 - Get the top quilted and do the binding
5. Paper Dolls Sweater
6. Mary Poppins Scarf- Mailed!
7. Wrap Skirt Experiment- ugh.  I see giving up in my future here. lol
8. Blue and Yellow Bag
9. Modern Log Cabin Blanket
10. Hey Teach

This is  my last post before I leave for Vancouver!  Maybe I'll do some posting while I'm gone but I'm really not sure I'm going to get the chance. Packing is pretty much done and it's just last minute cleaning things that need to happen before we leave now.  Love you guys! I'll miss you!


  1. Vancouver - I've always wanted to go - well when I found out Stargate was filmed there - LOL - Joe Mallozzi, a Stargate producer /writer blogs from there and writes about alot of restaurants....
