Finally finished

I finally finished the Sweetheart Shorts, can I get a WOO HOO?

They are done, ends are are woven in, and laundered just in time to go off to Iraq. I used Knitpicks Shine Sport and if you have never knitted with it I have got to say that you need to. I loved the feel of it when I was knitting these shorts, but it didn't compare to the way it felt after it had been washed. Really soft, I think it would make a nice camisole.

Here is a picture of my hand painted yarn. I don't know yet what I am going to do with it. It was fun and I will do it again, I just need to get a better place to do it than my kitchen. It's kinda messy.

Great shorts!

The yarn you dyed came out great! I love pink and brown together.

I am just so proud of you! but I am so sorry they're going off to Iraq, seriously. I'd much rather they stay home with you (being worn by the owners of said shorts).

Your handpainted yarn looks great, will you be bringing it Tuesday???
