Finish or Frog Friday - Slacker!!!

Okay, yes, I have been a terrible slacker when it comes to the Finish or Frog KAL.  I was going strong in January, but then it all kind of fell apart when Pea got mugged.  But fear not, Finish or Frog Friday is back!!  And this week, it's . . .

That's right! A Finished Object!


Amused is done!!!  I love it and K.C. has given it her seal of approval.  I wanted to finish it by the end of March, but an evil 12-hour low blood sugar on the 31st caused me to fall short of my goal.  The final rounds of ribbing and the cast-off were done on the morning of April Fools.  As it turns out, I've been a bit lazy about delayed in the blocking, but I can tell you it fits perfectly.  The final FO post with all the details will be written once the blocking in done.

I wanted to wear it tomorrow to Stars on Ice, and I'm debating if I should just go ahead and wear it unblocked.  I think the collar will lay a little better after a good blocking, but I can probably get away with it in it's unblocked state.  Decisions, decisions!

Beautiful! Go ahead and wear it, then block it overnight when you get home. Nobody will ever know the diff!

Oh wow, that is a gorgeous sweater!

Yes, I'd say wear it, too!

Consensus is : WEAR IT! and love it.

Stars on ICE! Fireman secretly loves ice skating. I like it too. He falls asleep to ice skating whenever we watch it and he has such a hard time falling asleep that it is a very good thing for him. I like the shows better than the competition because they usually complete their routines and jumps better in the shows!
Jennifer will be so happy for you to post it on her forum.

It is gorgeous! Wear it and get all the compliments I know are coming your way.

Enjoy the Stars on Ice show. I know if you wear your sweater, you'll be toasty warm through the whole thing.

beautifyl!!! i say wear it unblocked - winter is almost over...

Spectacular! It's really, really gorgeous. I can't wait to see it on you. Definitely wear it ASAP. You wouldn't want the weather to warm up while you were blocking and waste a perfectly good sweater day. There aren't too many more sweater days left in the season - so seize the opportunity to wear it everywhere you can.
