It is finished

And it's only, um, five months late.

My brother got married in June and moved into a lovely new home. I just couldn't buy him dishes, you know? It's my brother! But with so many babies coming into my life, I was really behind on gift knitting, so I didn't even start this until after the wedding.

Since my brother's tastes are pretty conservative, I knew I'd have to table any crazy crochet patterns or zig-zags. I settled on the Moderne Log Cabin in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes, basing the colors on the sofas and pillows in their home. But garter stitch? Wow, that s*** takes forever!

So I'm dropping it in the mail today - a little later than I wanted, but well within a year! I imagine then wrapping themselves in it while watching the Steelers, or spreading it on the floor as they sit in front of their fireplace.

Yes, you are well within the year time frame, so 'late' doesn't even factor into it at all! Nice work, a true labor of love from a sweet sister:)

It is gorgeous. A gift late is still a gift. And what a gift it is
