Can You Believe It?

So, at Sunday knitting, I brought up the fact that I haven't had an FO since May. That's pretty sad, really. It's especially sad because my last FO was a garter stitch scarf. Hmm. However, as of tonight, Orangina is done. Can you believe it? I have another FO! Finally, I am proving I really can (and do) knit. I'm planning to wear it tomorrow to Knit Nite at Knitorious, where I will have Kara take a pic or two so I can show you this awesome project. It was a fun and fairly quick knit, and it turned out great. I'm so excited that it is my first adult-size knitted article of clothing that actually fits, and looks pretty good! I mean, I'm actually going to wear it in public, in front of other people; in front of other knitters, even. Woo Hoo!

You know what the best thing was about finishing this project? I got to call Kara and tell her it was done. I can't tell you enough how fantastic it is to have good knitting friends. Usually, I stand in front of the mirror in my craft room, and tell Muffin and Sam how exciting it is to have completed a knitting project. They are generally less than enthused. But Kara? She was thrilled, and so was I...

Congrats! I can't wait to see it! Don't you just love when something finished is wearable? Or maybe that is just me ;)
