See this???

I knit it. With my own two hands (well, and 2 different sizes of knitting needles and some yarn). I can't remember a time I've been more proud of something I knit. This took time, it took learning techniques I hadn't used before, and it took frustration.

Lots of frustration.

It's not perfect, I messed up a bit in the lace work but I'm still going to wear it. I'll just make another one. Kind of a "before perfection and after practice" study.

I said I'd knit a shrug and I did. In fact, I'm just going to go ahead and call this a sweater... for summer. So hey, I knit a sweater. Hooray for being a grown up knitter! And hooray for being done with a project that actually took concentration. Now back to some no brainers for a while.

That shrug is great! And your brother would like to add that that is a good and sexy picture of you, and I would like to agree. *nods*

Well thank you both!

And I would like to add that your new self-made hairstyle is still looking great!

Oh, I wish I could claim this self made hair style - I broke down and went and paid to have it cut. I was too afraid to cut it too short myself. I'm a whimp :)
