Dinah is done!

Aren't we lucky that our knitting always takes us back? Just like a good friend -- so forgiving and welcoming. I guess that's one reason I'll probably always knit, even if I take long, unexplained breaks.
Yes, Dinah is done! This was a "quickie" project that started in November 2007. I planned to wear it to my office holiday party, but when I missed the date it lingered (well, more than lingered). Last week, I dug it out and found that I only had 3 cm left on one sleeve! I finished it up, and I'm fairly happy with the results. This sweater is so light weight you don't know that it is on, but it keeps you amazingly warm.

Pattern: Dinah from Rowan # 42
Yarn: Rowan Silk Wool and Kidsilk Haze
Mods: Shortened the KSH part of the sleeves; plus, knit the silk wool part first and then knit the KSH into the wool instead knitting them separately and joining.
Next up, another lingering WIP-- Carrie from Ella Rae in Noro Kureyon. Just one sleeve to knit and I'll have another long forgotten project completed. I must complete this one while it is still cold, or it may never see the light of day.
Plus, Isabel has made a special request that I just can't refuse. I'll wait to tell you about it next time.
Happy New Year, and Happy Knitting!

The sweater, and you, look beautiful! I love the yarn and the pattern - you'll wear for much longer than the time it took to knit it.
