Drumroll Please...

It's almost Christmas, so I thought I'd have a little contest! But that's not what the drumroll is all, once again, drumroll please...

Because the Big Sister Cardigan, she is finished! (Ta-Daaa!) From the lace hem...

to the cabled waistband and ice-cream buttons...

to the shawl collar and raglan sleeves,

and even the fancy cuffs, with just a touch of that lace from the hem...

This knit, designed by Gramma, is ready for Peanut to wear!

All that's left is to wait (patiently???) for Peanut's upcoming visit! Oh, and I could block the thing to open up the lace and even all the stitches out, extra-pretty like...but I think I'll just lay it flat to dry, like I'll tell Mindy to do when she washes it. Of course, even without that extra step, I love this knit! 

Have you knit something you love lately? Tell me about it in the comments, and I'll enter you in a drawing for a Christmas surprise! (If you have trouble leaving a comment, just shoot me an email at PrettyKnittyJewelry AT yahoo DOT com!) Deadline for entries is December 1st, and Good Luck!

Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!


  1. Well, this is an ongoing knit, but I love it very much - I'm doing a crackerjack scarf/cowl for the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey season. Currently lots of win stripes which makes me happy, but I really love the fact that I have no idea what the finished product will look like!

  2. That's so cute!

    I just got a note this morning from a woman who's a friend of a friend and who'd had a really horrible rotten day. A cowl had shown up in the mail... Man, that felt good.
