The Sweater Is Done!!

First off , Happy Mother's Day everyone - the weather here is uber-gross, but I'm sitting in bed with a big cup of coffee so I'm not really caring. As you can see the sweater is finally finished and I'm very pleased with the way it came out. David took the pictures very quickly - it was really warm yesterday around here and that sweater heats up pretty quick. Due to the all over cabling on it, it's a very slouchy and stretchy thing which is just what you want your sweater to be. But overall - I'm happy with it. It's going on a cross country trip to Oregon to live with Kim and her three cats. Vincent has already licked it a few times so it's no stranger to cats. Now onto my next project - I'm thinking socks but I have to find a pattern. I was looking for a plain pair to make - after all that cabling I just want something a little mindless. I have the yarn and the perfect pattern - I even did a gauge swatch on a pair of #4 straight needles. Ready to go? Nope. Of all the gazillion knitting needles I own I do NOT own one stinking pair of size 4 double point needles. Bastards. And I'm pretty sure the only knitting store that would carry them is not open on either Sunday or Monday. So I'll look for another sock pattern or I might even try doing it on two circular sets, we'll see. I have a book on how to do  that but it always looks too hard to figure out. Other than that I'll be watching the TV of course. I watched the end of the Children of The Corn Marathon followed by Hell Tunnel (sorority girls spend a night in a haunted Kentucky sanatorium, C on the plot, A on the cheesiness) - today however in the afternoon on the BBC channel is an Ab Fab marathon - if you get that channel pull up a sofa for the afternoon. Out of all the shows I love that one is the funniest thing I've ever seen, when they ended that series it was a dark day.  Speaking of English things, my friend Nancy will be spending the entire weekend at the end of May - we haven't seen each other in about 8 years so I'm very much looking forward to that.
