Alert the media

I hope everyone is sitting down, but today we will have some actual KNITTING CONTENT!! With a PICTURE!!

Does anyone need a moment before we continue?

This is a sweater I finished last month for the baby-to-be (BTB) my friends are expecting in February. The yarn is from the LYS that was going out of business a few months ago (it's Cascade 220 superwash). I went with the green since they don't know if the BTB is a boy or a girl.

The pattern is Tasia's Cardigan from Cabin Fever, which I can't say enough good things about. The pattern is well written, easy to follow and allows the sweater to be knit in one piece from the top down. The sleeves can even be knit in the round (my option) to avoid having to seam the sleeves.

I enjoyed this pattern so much that I am knitting the sweater a second time for BTB's big sister.

Today on Home Improvement

Well I found a chair today. It's not exacatly what I was looking for but what I really wanted was too big to fit through the door any way I measured it. Plus this was on sale and who can turn down a good bargain?

The covers on the cushions are removable so I can (in theory) change them if I ever wanted to.
