Happy Thanksgiving if you celebrate it, happy Thursday if you don't. Today I'm thankful for delicata squash, friends, family, kitties, and the 8-hour drive to my ancestral home plus a boyfriend who likes driving, allowing me lots of time to finish this:
hourglass unblocked

and also, for knitty's tutorial on duplicate stitch for giving me a revolutionary new way to weave in the ends. Soon, I hope to be thankful for the magic of blocking for fixing what is now a slightly wonky neckband. Better photos to follow!

Finally, I'm thankful for everyone who's visited my blog! I love reading your comments and checking out your projects and stories. This sweater in particular would have taken a lot longer without your encouragement. Cheers!

It's beautiful! It fits perfectly, too! I just love the turned hems- it makes the sweater look so pulled together!
