All day today, I've been thinking it was Wednesday, and I had plenty of time before my Survivor Contest reminder! Thanks to Lauren and Jan for the reminders!!!

So, I guess, I'll say Judd to get voted off, and I'll be knitting on my Willow, or pehaps that new thing I just cast on (bad Em!) But more about that later.

And, believe it or not, I have something for you, even though I already posted today, because my friend Beth came over to take pictures for me (shout out and a big thank you to Beth!).

Here's my finished Rebecca sweater; I wore it today for the first time. I knit it mostly over the summer, and it went so fast I hardly blogged about it at all. But when I finished it the neck was too tall, and I didn't like it (the whole sweater). I took it to a knitting group the other night, prepared to steek it into a cardigan, when someone said "if you just rip an inch or so off the neck, it will be cute" and everyone agreed. Alrighty then, how easy was that?!

I was a little self conscious in it, being big and white and bulky and all, but I actually got 2 compliments in the 30 minutes I was out in public. So here goes:

Details: Free pattern online from Rebecca magazine found here.
GGH Goa 16 balls (the pattern called for 17) and I did make it a little longer.
Overall a very cute and easy lace pattern, although I think I did encounter an error or two along the way, if you are knitting this, check to see if the numbers add up before hand, or e-mail me and I'll look back at my notes.
