FO Friday: Happy early birthday Me, from Me.

Yay! For the first and possibly last time ever, a self-imposed knitting deadline has been met with more than a few hours to spare! In fact, my birthday present to myself is complete more than three whole weeks before my birthday!

No modelled pics yet, but it fits. It actually fits, it’s long enough and wide enough and everything! Goes round my hips, covers my bit of podgy tummy, feels a lot nicer than the yarn did when I was knitting it, basically it’s awesome and I’ll be wearing it every day until my actual birthday (maybe slight exaggeration, but only a bit). To make matters even better, YARN DELIVERY!

Om nom nom

There’s technically now no more room for yarn on my designated yarn shelves. Now that the Gemini Top is complete, there are hardly any WIPs left for me to get sorted out. The only ones remaining are things that, to be honest, I can’t really be bothered with anyway. Therefore there was only one logical conclusion, and that was to get some work done on my own patterns cast on a second birthday present to myself and use up some of that new yarn .

can you tell what it is yet?

Next week, if my calendar isn’t wrong, is Knitting & Crochet Blog Week 2014. So prepare for an onslaught of barely thought out posts every day for a week, you’re welcome.

    Do you have any tips about how you joined the sleeves to the body so nicely? I always mess that up and yours look so good. Srsly, any tips/details would be like gold.

      There was no proper sleeve joining since most of it was knitted in the round and then only a few rounds of sleeve knitted separately. Best kind of sleeves, imo!

    Oh, that’s so pretty! And OMG, it’s blog week already? Guess I’ll be planning out some blog posts this weekend…

      Thanks 🙂 Yeah it’s sort of crept up on me too, but some of the prompts look fun so quite looking forward to it now!
