My first knitted sweater...

Here's my first knitted sweater! Granted, I did try making it 3 times last fall and ripped it out each time. Somehow, it worked fine on this attempt. Yarn: Dark umber by Colinnette (company in Wales). Hand dyed (by them, not me).

Behind me you can see our hideous paneling, the reason we are remodeling our house.

Wow! Looks great. You are a master at what James Carville calls, "stickin'" as in sticking with it. I'm impressed (but not surprised) that you started again after ripping it out. Lee-n-NOLA

Whoohoo! Looks great!

I've never used Colinette yarns. What did you think of it?

Cool- looks like it feels soft and light. Love the colors.

Celeste -

I've made a huge boo-boo and (perhaps) deleted my old blog. It's a long story, don't ask. At any rate, I would appreciate all of my blogger friends to update their links and - if you want - even make short post on your site about the site change (for any readers that may come from your sites). I may eventually move back to trevdiesel.blogspot.com IF I can get it working again. Until then, it will be: trev-diesel.blogspot.com
