Cast-on Party!

I started on the Knit Picks Palette Fair Isle Cardigan last night, joining the ribbing after 2 rows knit 'flat'. I know, it looks like a lot of nothing, but it gets better, really.

This is about as far as I got with it before I went to knit group (which Lisa graciously held this morning).

When I got there, Sabine tried on Ellen's Noro sweater, it's the 48" version, which Sabine thought she'd like the size of...

But it's almost a dress on her! She decided to rip out her sweater front (which was about 6" long, and wrapped almost all the way around her), and to knit a smaller size after trying the sweater on.

Liesel showed off her (pre-felted) bag that she knitted in Patons SWS. We're waiting for the final result... it's gotta be fabulous! (That's MJ, Sabine, part of Ellen's head, and Jake, the large dog-rug on the floor, looking on with pride.)

Anne finally successfully joined her ribbing in the round around 5pm, 7 hours from the beginning of the knit group today. She cast on, ripped, re-cast on, re-calcuated, and finally joined this sweater in the round.

And my final sweater...
