Hot Stuff!

Why "Hot Stuff"? Because I finished Sizzle!
Here it is, still blocking, but I'm planning to wear it tomorrow and will hold Kris down if necessary to get a picture of it actually on me. I love the way it fits, and if you are at all considering this pattern, I have one thing to say: DO IT! It rocks.

I'm quite proud of myself on this one, actually. Guess what I did on the shoulders? I GRAFTED them. That's right - after my kitchener success on the Pomatomus socks, I decided to go for it, and it WORKED!

Also, in the last couple of days, I got 2 packages from the Stitch Marker Swap.

All the way from Scotland, here are my adorable markers from Shonze, with a nifty postcard and a little bag she knit for them.

And here are the lovely ones from Esther.

Thanks to both of you!! I can't express how excited I have been to get these markers in the mail. Such lovely surprises, and such beautiful and creative work, too.

As far as other knitting progress, the blog may be a little picture-light for a while. I am trying very hard to get my Christmas knitting started, but since some of the recipients read this blog, I don't really want to give anything away.

Ooo! Great Sizzle! I've been ruminating on buying that pattern, but I think I'm getting tank burnout.

And I love the stitchmarkers (and the way the picture is posed almost exactly like Turtlegirl's pic of her SMs from Shonze!)

Double Ohhh! You are hot stuff! Congrats and I can't wait to see a pic of you wearing it. Love the stitch markers from Shonze too.

PS - a curly headed wolverine ???? Yeah, it made me chuckle too.

Heh, you beat me - I finished my Sizzle today but it still needs to be blocked. I love it so much that I might wear it before blocking anyway though! Yours looks great, can't wait to see what it looks like modelled. :)

Love the stitch markers! I can't wait to see the modelled sizzle! I don't have the book so I can't figure out what it looks like. *blush*

Uhhh.... Duhh....

It's obviously too late.

I know what Sizzle looks like. I got pattern names mixed up.

Oh Sizzle is very hot! And what nice gifts, I love the stitch markers. You could wear this as jewelry on sizzle practically.
