the sleeves were finished this morning, and the hoodie was mostly finished tonight ... it needs some "touch up" with the steam iron, ends woven in, and a button & loop. otherwise, it's done! i'll try to get a proper modeled picture tomorrow.

and, at the request of stitchy mcyarnpants, here's my hints ...




... this is what i look like! it's hard to not do one of those bathroom shots w/o laughing at yourself. also, it did not occur to me to pull the shower curtain closed until after the fact. oops.



and yep, that's a head full of gray la gran hair! the odd part, is that it's only that way in the front. the back of my head is just as brown as my t-shirt in the other photo. when i wear a hat, i often get carded, though i've been legal for 15 years. yes, do the math. ouch!

so, if you're looking for me at rhinebeck, you might be on the lookout for a short-haired salt&pepper chick sporting a donegal tweed central park hoodie. i will be wearing a i'm a square button, but not until i pick it up in stitchy's booth. i also plan on going to the meet up, saturday at 1pm.

okay, it's way past my bedtime ....

Yay! You finished the sweater!! I'm so jealous that you're going to Rhinebeck.. have fun and take lots of photos for the rest of us, ok?

I love the gray hair. I'm guessing that's natural. I think it looks cool and distinct. Now I know what you call yourself Gray La Gran. I wish I were going to Rhinebeck but school and lack of funds prevent me. Maybe next year when school's out! I also hope you get to wear your sweater there too.

Look at you! So pretty! When did you get your hair cut? It looks great ;)

Love the sweater progress - that tweed is luscious! Wish I could tagalong at Rhinebeck - but alas, not this year.

Have fun~

yay for finishing!!! i can't wait to see the whole thing in action! did you finish the skirt, too? you will be quite fetching and warm up at rhinebeck, and i must say--that's an excellent picture of you, too!

I agree with Lolly, your hair cut is key-ute. I hope that when my hair starts going gray, it all goes in the front like yours. It looks way more hardcore that way.

Have fun at Rhineback and be sure someone gets good shots of your in what's sure to be a beautiful sweater.

Thanks for posting a photo for Rhinebeck Bingo! As soon as I clicked on your blog I recognized the Central park Hoodie. I joined the KAL and the yarn arrived yesterday. I knitted up the swatches last night, so hmmm...

I'm so glad to say that I knew you back when you were just Brown LaGran, before the frosting started covering the cupcake!

p.s. your girlfriend loves you!
