Oh, pretty! too bad it will look so terrible on you. ;0. Geez, what a pill that teacher is! For one thing, rude. For another, socially incompetent. For a third, well, rhymes with switch. Nice role model she is for her students.

I love that quilt! That is very cool looking!

Vicki

ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Hurry, hurry, hurry, Bron, I can't wait to see this one finished!

I like Colin's quilt, too.
; )

Lara

Gosh, I think the color is really pretty! She doesn't know what she is talking about. Plus, someone who has the audacity to say such un-kind things to someone else, has her own set of major issues. Can't wait to see the finished sweater!

Paula

The sweater is beauteous - color choice is tres chic, (we knitters know!), pattern is lovely and the quality of the knitting is superb. I'm interested to hear you think the pattern is fairly easy. I tend to see patterning like this and put it on my "way, way in the future" list. Maybe I can drop one way. :-)

As for your year in review - I really love it! For bloggers looking for post fodder, I think the review of finished knits is an excellent topic. We all fall in love with designs that don't have practical application in our wardrobes or that won't look good on our "real woman" bodies. I love the ruffled corset belt you made but like you, I bet I wouldn't be comfortable wearing it. Thanks to your review I doubt I will give in to the temptation to make it. On the flip side, your v-stitch cardi that you love has been on my "to-make" list since I purchased the magazine. Your review tells me I should move it up higher on the list!

Cathy

Hi, I was surfing through and saw your Nantucket sweater. I just finished knitting it in blue (I like your green better). I agree with you, it is a surprisingly fun and easy pattern. The only problem I had with it is that it is too short for me... I have a longish torso so I needed 3-4 more inches otherwise it is a waistcoat. Other than that, it is a great pattern!

Bron

Thanks, Carrie. :) Yeah - if you saw this teacher...well....let's just say I can't say anything kind about her appearance so I won't say anything at all. ::wink::

Vicki - You & me both - I'm hurrying!

Lara - Yeah, comments like that really make you wonder about the source & what things have been said to her in the past to make it OK for her to act like that!

Paula - Thanks for the props regarding my year in review! It's actually kinda painful and/or cathartic for me so I'm glad it's helping someone out there!

Cathy - I hear ya on the length - I added 4" to compensate. :) I'm crossing my fingers that I'll like it once it's on!
