Gryffindor Sweater is done, NEXT!

Well, here it is. Fits beautifully. Which means that I'll be coming up with larger sizes quite soon, no doubt. Pattern is in the 9/26/07 post - please use it if you want! Valley Yarns washes and dries like a dream.
(On a side note, I haven't blogged much lately because things have been busy - like snaking out the dryer vent on our house which had 14 years of fossilized lint and crap in it. It took over 4 hours and involved filling a 10 quart bucket with unspeakable muck, but it was really fun in a way. I think being a plumber would be much more fulfilling than what I really do for money ...)

In case you don't recognize her, that's Hedwig on the bed . . . She'll being going trick-or-treating with us this year.
For my next trick, I'm doing the Green Mountain Spinnery Norwegian Roses pattern for my mom. Here's the start. Mom picked out the colors, and you might have heard about as people age the balance of their color receptors in their eyes changes and some people begin to really gravitate towards orange and yellow as those (cones? rods? I used to know) receptors burn out. I've insisted this is what's up with my mom for a while now. And I have to admit when I started to knit this I thought "oh golly, mom, this looks like Burger King" - but it doesn't. It's quite nice and understated. The colors in this picture are far brighter than real life.
