Finished for 2008

Finished cardigan!
This is the knit-along Bluebonnet Cardigan by Patricia Kalthoff I've been doing with the guild. Size 7 needles and four colors of Cestari wool 2-ply worsted weight. It makes a nice sturdy fabric and I've successfully worn it in freezing weather with no other coat or jacket.
This has been a fun knit and I learned how to do an i-cord cast on and an i-cord cast off. Always nice to learn new techniques.

And this is one of my hermit crabs - Tank. He's the biggest of the group.

Happy New Year everybody!

Happy New Year Cynthia! Great sweater.

Hubby said I can get a spinning wheel with our tax money this year since I did all the hard work getting our major tax credit here (Finnigan) so I will be passing the Hitchhiker on to it's next spinner in 2009. Thanks again for your generosity!

Very nice cardigan, I love the color transitions.

Hank is awesome! I used to have hermit crabs when I was little, but they were teeny tiny.
