I’m on a roll, people!

I have another finished object! I am feeling drunk with power and self satisfaction! Bwahahahaha! Actually, that’s not really true, but it does feel kind of good to finish things. May I present the Ribby Cardi!

I tell ya, that Bonne Marie has done it again! It’s a great pattern and fun to knit up. I wore it today, and it was very comfy. I am thinking that one in cotton would be a great spring sweater. I have a couple balls of the main body color left, but I can’t remember how many I started out with. I should really write these things down.
And a bonus photo. I’ve been getting a lot of fun packages lately, but I really had to share this one with you. Yup, it’s my very own Sew Dorky donut, sent by the one and only Action Hero Melissa:

    The Ribby Cardi looks great on you and I love your choice of colors! I’m thinking I should be making one of these for myself. BTW, Can’t you look at the receipt for the yarn and find out how much you bought?

    Well they’ve got a new dance and it goes like this
    (Bop shoo-op, a bop bop shoo-op)
    Yeah the name of the dance is Peppermint Twist
    (Bop shoo-op, a bop bop shoo-op)
    Well you like it like this, the Peppermint Twist
    It goes round and round, up and down
    Round and round, up and down
    Round and round and a up and down
    And a one two three kick, one two three JUMP!
    Rock ON, Missy Eggplant – I hug and kiss you! YOU & the Ribby are BEAUTIFUL!!!

  14. Melanie says:

  15. Silvia says:

    The Eggplant version is stupendous! It looks like a perfect fit. Nice work Mariko.

  16. shokufeh says:

    Lovely ribby card! Such a great fit!

  17. chelee says:

    You ROCK!! Love those colors. It seems to be the sweater to knit these days. I’m sure I’ll be doing one soon too.

  18. gaile says:

    That sweater is so supereggplant!! Love the colors and that donut is positively precious! Hey, is your green color 3705 New Leaf? If so, that’s what I got, with Dusky Purple for the body. Any tips for the rest of us who haven’t cast on yet?

  19. Stella says:

    Hi Mariko, Your Ribby is supercute. But, I can’t believe you beat me! I finished all the knitting & weaving in of ends of mine. Now I have to hunt a zipper. Oh, and I love your running top. Way to go with the serger! (yes, I’m fawning)

  20. Norma says:

    LOVE your colors and, like Carolyn, this makes me wish I was working on mine right now, too!

  21. lynette says:

    Bravo! It looks great and wonderful on you.

  22. melissa says:

    Your Ribby turned out great and you found a perfectly matched zipper! Knitting one in cotton is a great idea.

  23. Theresa says:

    Now I know who I’m going to ask questions of when I get to that difficult zipper part.
    And your donut looks almost good enough to eat!

  24. J Strizzy says:

    If you ordered the yarn from elann you can log in and look up past purchases.
    I love the color combo — like a wearable eggplant, very appropriate.

  25. Meredith says:

    The Cardi and donut…both are oh so yummy!

  26. Trico says:
