Zee Aibhlinn! She eez feeneeshed!

Finally! Here's my attempt at the self-timer to model the Aibhlinn. This was supposed to have been finished for last Wednesday, but I knew before I started it that it wouldn't be. My friend completely understands. The yarn is Plymouth Encore Colorspun. Isn't it pretty? I'll admit to being a wee bit impatient with this knit, forgive me, I started it on the 27th. I kept measuring and it never seemed to grow. So I gave it a good tug. Yup, I tugged the thing hither and yon and finally it grew! It's none the worse for wear, I promise. I just couldn't take it anymore. Next on the to-finish list is the Fuzzy Feet, which are nearly done.

It's fantastic! I'm sure your friend will love it. I really like the colours in it.

I hate projects that won't grow, I blame the kniting pixies.

Aww, elizabeth, you're gonna make me blush! Actually, I coulda used some blush in that pic...

And rain, with two cats, you'd think knitting pixies wouldn't have a chance of survival in this apartment. But I guess you can't expect that from a pair of cats that can't even kill a bug.

I think I'll try blocking this, it is 25% wool, so perhaps it'll widen a wee bit. I'd love to try and get the bottom bit to bell out over the shoulders more.
