FO: Classroom Sweater (plus sock yarn!)

THE CLASSROOM SWEATER IS COMPLETELY FINISHED!

copy-of-111208-classroom-sweater-and-sock-yarn-001I wore it to school today! But for some strange reason, the air/heat wasn’t working AT ALL in my classroom, and it was literally so hot I was sweating, so I had to take it off. :[

Also, on Monday afternoon, I went over to my dear friend Dani‘s house and helped her dye yarn. We did 40 mini-skeins for a Fiber-Box contribution she was doing, and then we dyed some in her ‘Modern Romance’ colorway, and then she had 3 skeins of KnitPicks sock yarn that she said I could “play around with.” Oh, and we also destroyed a Pyrex dish. Literally, it exploded all over the kitchen. Nobody was hurt, thank goodness.

We decided, since there were 3 skeins, that I would keep one, and Dani and Christina would get the other 2.

Here’s the first skein I did, which I dubbed “High Voltage.”

Dani has the 2nd skein I did, called “Radioactive.” I WISH SHE WOULD TAKE PICTURES OF IT. HINT HINT. :]

This is the 3rd skein I did, called “Bag of Crazy,” going to Christina. We didn’t name it until after I’d given it to her. (She told me to take it home and take pictures of it, though, and that’s why I still have it.) I tried to do Mardi Gras colors, but the purple became more of a navy blue, and the green isn’t right for Mardi Gras.

So, that’s all for right now. I finished one of the UT Hats. I need to make 2 more. I’m very optimistic about Christmas Knitting this year. Because I finished the classroom sweater waaaaaay sooner than I thought I would, it means that I have more time to knit for Christmas gifts AND more time to knit for me! Most exciting.
