Thank you for the comments about my camera phone pictures. I'm still a little shocked at the quality too! Definitely makes the purchase seem a more worthwhile. Plus, last night, I realized that my resolution has been on Medium this whole time... wow, so I turned it up to high and took a couple pictures at the show last night. More on that later.
Also in the comments, Jessica asked about the Tubular Bind-Off. I did indeed find a great tutorial online. I have one for the Tubular Cast-On as well, but I think it's bookmarked at work. I'll try to remember to post it on Monday. *edit* Here it is!
And now for what you've all been waiting for... I finished the sweater! The knitting was done Friday night, the weaving in of ends yesterday at Kurt's archery class, and also the *gasp* tacking of the V-neck point. (Marisa, I was scared doing this for a couple of inches so I can't imagine going around a whole hat!) Then I washed and blocked it in time for me to rush out the door to Fargo yesterday for the Winter Carnival.
Is that worth a gold medal or what?
Pattern: Essential Stripe Sweater from Knit and Tonic in the smallest size
Yarn: Wool of the Andes from Knitpicks in Pumpkin, Hollyberry, Iron Ore, and Mist. Almost two complete balls of Iron Ore and 1+ balls of the others.
Needles: US 7, 29 inch circulars and US 7 DPN's
I'll have to add the specs later (added) or I'll be late for knitting group. Oh, and I'll show you the high-res pics and other surprises about my camera phone tomorrow. For today, I'm going to bask in my Olympic glory. :)
P.S. The completed sweater picture was actually taken with the digital camera, not my phone. It was easier to set up for the timer.
