I’m no longer a virgin

100_1060At voting that is!  We went tonight and for the first time ever, I voted.  Now I’m not as educated in politics as I should be, but I had one goal and I accomplished it.  Nuff said.

While we were at City Hall I had the boyfriend snap a crappy pic of Ariann.  It’s better than nothing and nothing is what you were going to get at the rate I was going.  So here she is, ignore my goofy face and the electrical lines in the background. 

Official stats:

  • Pattern – Ariann by Bonnie Marie Burns of Chicknits
  • Needles – US Size 6 and 7 Addis
  • Yarn – Rowan Kid Classic
  • Took me – About a month, longer than it should have
  • Comments – I used the magic loop for the sleeves instead of dpns, the tension was mych more even that way.  Yes I know the sleeves are a bit long, but I happen to like that on this sweater.  This is a great pattern, I will say that even though I had lots of problems – it was all me!  I am planning to knit it again with a different yarn, not anytime soon but eventually.  I love it!!!  Go now, go buy the pattern, and knit one for yourself!
