I have gotten a few emails with Congrats on meeting my first deadline and excitement over not being able to wait to see it when it comes out next year. All of the emails tell me to celebrate my hard work! And I have... but not in usual way. No champagne (though I have some in the fridge for the weekend), no dinner in a fancy restaurant (Ron made grilled Tilapia), and no cake or decedent dessert (a bowl of ice cream was in order).
So what did I do to celebrate last night? I cast on a sweater!
Yep, I am working on a sweater. LOL.
The yarn for it really was the treat. It is Dream In Color Softy in a color called Chinatown Apple. Kinda pricey for the 600 yards I need to make this Juliet sweater. But it is a celebration right? I will always have my sweater and each time I put it on, I'll remember that I made it that year I was working on writing my first book.
