BrownBerry's Update - 4 out of 5 done!

Who's a happy knitter? That's me! That's me!

I'm in agreement with those of you that have said this GAL has really kicked your finishing into high gear. It has done the same for me - I really looked forward to posting this update to share my excitement with you - even when the scarf ribbing seemed like it might not actually end :)

My Nomad Hat and Scarf set is finished. This gift was due for gifting to a friend in February (really due anytime before winter in Canada ends), and now I can mail it out to her this week. I'm modeling it here on her behalf. We have about the same amount of hair to contend with so I modified it to fit her - putting some extra room in the top of the hat...

I really hope she likes it.

One baby cardigan/pullover left to go and that will complete my January list items.

Happy knitting all!

Congrats on all the great finishes :) I think you'll have to make another Nomad for yourself if you haven't already - it looks fantastic on you!

I would be hard pressed to send that away! It is beautiful.

See, that is precisly the reason I joined this KAL. I want to keep all my FOs for myself.

They look great on you... but if it is being sent to Manitoba, Canada, it will be well loved especially if the person lives near Winterpeg-I mean Winnipeg!

A lovely gift that looks lovely on you. (I know it's been said already but it's true!)
