Look what Andrew brought me when he came home last night:
Forgive my poor photography skills - it was night time and if I had taken the picture in the window the flash would have reflected and the photo would have looked worse. Even better than getting roses, these flowers even smell! My mother-in-law has many flower/seed catalogs, and whenever I see a page with roses and the write-up says 'faint scent' or 'light scent', I lose all interest. I want my roses to come on strong. Thank you, Andrew!
Oh - WW update - make that 24.8 pounds to go :) Yes, I write that as I savour my Symphony bar with almonds and toffee chips. Don't judge me!
I have made my decision and handed in my intention to finish Veste Everest for the Yarn Harlot's Olympics Challenge. To see a picture of what the finish object will look like, check out:
As always, I am making a few alterations. I have read a few blogs of people who have already finished this project, and I am going to do one extra set of cable repeats to lengthen the body a bit. Not that I am particularly long or tall - just, uh, chesty. I am making the largest size (52" chest) even though that will be too big for me because I tend to knit tight and I would rather have the vest be more on the loose side. And I will be making it out of some royal heather blue Wool Ease so my husband can throw it in the washer and dryer with impunity.
