Gold, and snow.

Ok. so scratch what I said in the last post. Apparently, once I challenge myself to knit a sweater for the olympics, I must finish. Because I finished a week early.
Behold: The Olympic Moch Cardi

365-240: Gold!

Yarn: Knitpicks Wool of the Andes, 10.5 balls.
Mods: My gauge was off by a stitch, so I made a smaller size then I would have otherwise. Also, I added a full buttonband after finishing the body, instead of doing the half button band that the pattern calls for. Also, when there's buttons, they'll be all the way down. I didn't want another top-buttoning only sweater - I already have two.

The knitting is finished. However, it's not ready to wear. You see, I hate the colour. I ordered the yarn from Knitpicks, and when it arrived, the blue-ish teal colour I thought I ordered was plain, boring, bland blue.
Not the end of the world. I'm going to overdye it. But I don't have a big enough pot. Well, I do, but it's in Toronto, and I'm not. So, if I can't find one (pot) at the thrift store this weekend, I'll just have to wait 'till I get back to TO.

All is well here in Rochester, where unlike Toronto, we actually are having winter. Check out the snow! (we're supposed to get 12-15 inches in the next day.)

365-242: ZOMG Snow!
