Philosopher's Wool Kit is done!

Hooray! I finally finished my Philosopher's Wool cardigan kit that I bought at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Fest in May of 2003. Here's the photo evidence:

I knit the body of the sweater in the round and then cut the armholes and the front, like I did for the Poetry in Stitches sweater earlier this year. It was much less scary this time.

I've also been working on my convertible Knitty shawl, made out of lovely bamboo that I bought in Paris. I love bamboo! It's so soft and wonderful to work with. It does tend to catch on things and pull out strands, similar to cotton, but I've been able to deal with that so far.
