I've been referring to wicked as my six day sweater. I cast it on Wednesday evening just over a week ago, and finished it on Tuesday. Today it's finally dry. I loooove it. So comfy and soft and perfect. Halfway through the knitting I ordered some supermerino to do a short sleeved version. I think I'll go down a size when I make the next one. This one is loose and comfy and perfect for layering, but I'd want it smaller for a wear alone sweater. I'll have the boy or someone at the coffeshop take a picture of me in it tonight, but here it is laying flat.
I'm also thinking of going without the pocket on the shortsleeved version, and instead change the bottom to a wide swath of the twist edging that's on the collar and sleeves. We shall see. :)
I went back to knee sock #2 when I finished Wicked, so I've gotten a little farther along finally. I finished the short row heel this morning and I'm finally on the leg. w00t.
