Feelin’ Good

Look! A new picture of  Pole!

After all that searching and waiting for a new ball, it took about 20 minutes to finish the sweater once I had the yarn. It felt funny trying it on for the photo today, since it was about 100 degrees (38 C) again, but it’ll be a fair bit cooler up in New York this weekend. I’ll try to get some pictures of it in action at my cousin’s wedding.

Now that I’ve completed the cardigan in time for the wedding and survived the week at work, I’m feeling pretty good about life. It’s amazing what checking a few things off the list does for the psyche. The promise of a weekend full of new places and a great party and hours and hours on the train to knit this hat (and the coordinating cowl, I think) is also pumping me up.

Having Monday off work doesn’t hurt either!
