Obsession, Thy Name is Cassidy

THANK YOU all SO MUCH for you words and hugs about our poor boy. My family and I are going to feel the sting of his passing for quite some time. He had a great life, we gave him a great life, and we all miss him like crazy. He lived in Michigan with my fam, but I can not begin to tell you how odd it is that he isn’t just there any more.

Recently, I’ve been completely taken with Bonne Marie Burns “Cassidy” pattern. I have wanted desperately to knit it since I first saw it in August, about a week before she officially released it for sale online.
I started the first sleeve on Oct. 11th, while in Boston, and from there on out it has been ON. I want to do nothing but knit this amazing sweater. I freaking love it. Tonight, I seamed the shoulders, and am cranking on the hood. I knit the body in one piece, and oh, how I want to wear it now. It will be done this week. It will.

Also, knitting a red sweater is so not good for blog fodder. The photos all look like crap. Freaking red. Even though it is the perfect red.

    Ooh, that red is gorgeous. I also lust after Bonne Marie’s Cassiday pattern, so I’ll pay special attention to how yours is progressing.

    I’ve been eyeing Cassidy and Twist for myself…I have several sweater’s worth of yarn marinating in the stash that needs to be used and a person that needs to be kept warm (that’d be me, in case you’re wondering, hehe) ;o) Your Cassidy is beautiful so far!

  9. looks smashing so far! Now I have a stupid question, how do you figure out how to knit the body in one piece?

    It looks great! I need to work on my finishing skills, because mine never look quite as good finished as they should!
