Be still my heart
It won't be long now until she's cruising, and from there walking.
I've finally finished the Five College Sweater. After giving it some thought I've realized I've been affiliated with five colleges over the years.
West Virginia University*
Summer Opportunity at UCSD

Cal State University Long Beach
The previous dog and pony show (hopefully) served as a distraction from my craptacular finishing techniques. I'll redo the sleeves 15 pounds from now when the sweater fits. My perception of what I thought would fit me when I cast the sweater on at 8 months pregnant is worlds away from my actual size 8 months post pregnancy.
If you've missed my legion of posts on the matter I lost the pattern for the Five College sweater in the early days of Maya's life. It was lost, tucked away in some baby literature of some sort or another, never to be seen again. I decided to finish the sweater without the pattern. I'm damn proud of the results and it's given me renewed confidence in my abilities. The experience has also spurred my interest in other traditional sweaters. Expect more traditional knits in the coming months.
I've still got many more San Juan Mission photographs I'd like to share.
*In the interest of brevity I'll keep it short today by saying today I feel like the back end of that horse, but not because I partied too much as an undergrad.
