Drum Roll Please

I present to you... The Norwegian Cardigan!

Norwegian Cardigan

Nine years in the making and I finally finished it! Now that feels good. I had to felt it up a little because it turned out so enormous. That took a little bravery, to pop her into the washing machine. There's no going back from that! But I literally felted her one minute at a time, for about 6 minutes total, and I think I got the size just right. And then it rained all week and I was afraid she might grow mold trying to "dry" on my kitchen counter. Every day I would flip, fold, pat, fan, fluff. Eventually she was dry and I sewed on the clasps when I should have been crocheting a special-request niece birthday present, AND THEN I had to wear her IMMEDIATELY, even though it was 60 degrees and sunny. I got lots of accolades at work, where I strutted around with a glass of ice water trying not to look like I was sweating from the half a sheep I was wearing.

Pretty great.
