Victory!

I finished Mesilla today (minus the embroidery)! HOORAY! I ended up frogging the waistband and adding 2 1/2" to the MC then reknitting the waistband. It was definitely the correct decision because it is now the perfect length for me. I can't wait to tackle the embroidery again once it's dry from its blocking.

In its place, I cast on the Dollar and a Half Cardigan from the Spring 07 Interweave. Loving it so far! It's bound to give me angst at some point, but it's starting off strong, which is always favorable.

The first bmp is nearly complete, so I'd like to finish that off sometime soon. Also the baby wrap cardigan, though I found out the shower is mid-Sept, so I've time yet. It's nearly done though, so I'd like to count it off as another FO.

Yay for finishing! Good luck with the embroidery. Hope that goes well this time. If not, can you wear the sweater plain?

And I can't believe that you haven't given up on the bmp socks. I still maintain that they would cause my untimely death.

I'd like to leave you with a comment from the Harlot's latest blog entry *grin*: "I admit, although it is not my preference, this "one at a time thing" really gets stuff done." BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Now do you see why I'm monogamous? *grin*

I want to see a pic of Mesilla when your all done with the embroidery.
The Dollar and half cardigan was one I was considering, as well. Of course, I need to finish the Ruffled Surplice first before I even consider starting another sweater.

Thanks for the comment about the socks.

Re: projects, will you be doing the Molly's Technical Colour Coat from Charmed knits? That one looks like fun! :P
