In Time for the Rapture

The sweater that I named In Time for the Rapture is done.

I did get to wear it once before the weather went all crazy ninja like and sent tornadoes, rain, and now stupid humidity and heat.

But since the Rapture never came, or did but Jeebus couldn't find any good Christians to take with him, the guy that we trust our end of the world predictions to said there would be another chance for the Rapture in October, so I decided to make another sweater just like this one but in red. She's finished, but there are no pics yet.

You'll just have to get your rapture on with this one for now.

This sweater. Right here. This is the reason that I learned to knit.

A perfect blend of Malabrigo and lace detailing on the hem and button bands.

When I first started this sweater, knit from the bottom up, (oh, it's Talia on Ravelry btw), I started with the lace hem, and was hooked. It's a bit fiddly, but o so purty, and I started having dreams of it.

I know I haven't shared in a while, been super busy loving being off work and playing at Crafty Planet, because, let's face it, working at a yarn and fabric store really isn't working at all. It's playing.
