I can wear it! (and a giveaway)

I finished my knitting adventure project....and I can actually wear it!  :)

Here's how it looked when I got started:


and after about 3 days of working on it.....messed up some of the "yarn overs"...but sort of fixed them


My finished product!  Not too shabby!


And lookie here....I can actually wear it!!  (pardon my photography skills...taking my own picture proved to be more difficult than I would have thought it would be!)


And now for the good stuff :)  

Had a wonderful "girl's day" this past weekend and dropped by a cute little stitching shop in town.  I didn't get much stitching done (too much girl chat to catch up on!) but I did pick up 2 LHN charts to give away!   Here they are:

Strawberry House (the strawberries have little beads for seeds!)
Tall Pines
This will be a short giveaway..... Everyone that posts a comment is entered!  There will be two winners (one for each chart) and I'll draw the names the morning of March 22nd (in time for the TUSAL update for anyone who takes part in that!).  

Happy Hump Day!

A really lovely cardigan - you knitted it really quickly.

Fabulous knitting, your cardigan is so pretty. I can never get my tension right when knitting anything bigger than a babies jacket.

Your knitting is amazing! It is wonderful that you can turn a skein of yarn into something you can actually wear! Thank you for the LHN giveaway chance!

Jo who can't think of a clever nickname said...

I love your little cardigan, it's so sweet. I have a similar mass-produced one in black from a shop, I bet your's is much nicer!
I love the Strawberry Cottage chart too.
