The deed is done.

It reminds me of a juicy blackberry

I'm sure you'll all be thrilled to know I have chosen my two sweater patterns, and have already started on the first one.

It's knit from the top down, which is a new technique for me. I started last night, and I'm already past the first buttonhole!

Once again, not me.
I'm sure there will be plenty of photos of my pasty white Wisconsin winter skin to show you next week.
