A Finished Object

It's probably too warm to look at woolly stuff where you are, but up here in Maine we still have several more weeks of sweater weather (it's actually beautiful today, but it is Maine and you never know when it's going to drop below freezing).
This is the Drops Jacket that it seems like everyone on Ravelry has been making. I probably wouldn't have made it if I hadn't seen how good it looks on nearly every body type - my favorite thing about Ravelry is that you get to see how knit patterns look on real people, not just on models with stylists cinching, hiking and hoisting. This is the first sweater I've made for myself, and it only took a little less than a month. Granted I worked on it while on vacation, and I have needles in my hand in virtually every photo, but still that's a vast improvement over the year-long Avast project for Davis!
And don't worry, seeing these pictures inspired me to get my hair trimmed almost immediately.

I love the sweater! I like the 3/4 sleeves and how it swings free without looking like a sack. AND I like your hair because it looks like mine. Too bad you chopped it! A little mayhem on your head never hurt anyone. Unless you use too much Dippity Do.

WAY COOL! Looks great, you did a nice job. You should bring it in on Thursday so I can see it up close.

Lovely sweater! I love the color on you. Am I seeing a bit of an Amelie style on you?

Nice color, and what a speed racer with needles you are.
