Look who's blocking!!

Cobblestone is done! Hooray! Woo-hoo! Hallelujah! (Can you tell how freakin happy I am to have this beast off my needles and onto my beach towel?) Cobblestone
The last week or so of knitting this nearly 2 pound monster has required some reinforcements:
Heat wraps
These things work great, but they are only for one time use, then you toss them. But my wrist was soooo thankful for a little releif, that I didn't care.

Hopefully this weekend it will be sunny for at least 5 minutes so I can get a decent picture of him in it!

How funny that you just finished a cobblestone! My boyfriend's is in the works right now, though not nearly so far along as to weigh two pounds yet!

What yarn did you use? Yours looks great!

Happy Friday!

Looks great! Can't wait to see Joe modeling it! Thanks for the tip on those Thermacare things - I will have to check those out.

The sweater looks great. I've thought about getting the wrist wraps. Do you wear them while you're knitting too?

I saw you won over on Knittymuggins blog, so I had to check you out. I'm going to echo everyone else's questions about the Thermacare... they really work huh? Can you wear them while knitting or is it just for afterwards. How long do they stay hot? Thanks in advance!
