How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 24 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

Yes, I finished a knitting project last week.
Pattern:Picovoli by Grumperina.
Needles: 24" No. 5 Clover bamboo circular.
Yarn:KnitPicks Shine sport in Cherry(5 skeins).
Cast on: February 25, 2006
Cast Off: March 31, 2006
Modifications: I added 4" onto the suggested length of 1 1/2" after the waist increases. I would have made it even a bit longer in length but I ran out of yarn. I'm not sure if I can get into the form fitting aspect of this shirt but when it gets warmer I'll try it out.

Omg, Anna, it looks FABULOUS!!! I'm really impressed! And, I'm really encouraged...I still haven't bought my needles yet, but I'll be casting on for my Picovoli as soon as the Bigass Giant Chunky Sweater is done. Yay for you! :D
