Shedir the incredible

I finished it. It's a bit out of the given measurements, yup, I didn't swatch. It's 9.5" high instead of nine. Here it is before washing:


This pattern is very clever (Jenna Wilson, you rock!) and really not that hard to knit. The only thing I would try to avoid next time are the holes from making one stitch after the ribbing. They kind of bug me. Maybe it'll look better after the wash I am going to give it now. And maybe they are only there to begin with because I used different yarn.

Back to the X-mas knitting now - I really shouldn't dabble with Shedirs and the like, but it's so much fun.

7.15 p.m.: Ugh. Just got a call from "Bureau en Gros" - I am invited to an interview. The whole call happened in French and I am still dazed and confused, luckily Rolf was listening to what I was saying or else I wouldn't have remembered the time of the interview and the name of the person who called. Ugh.

Wow! Good luck! And congratulations for managing the whole conversation in French - you go girl! ;-)
It reminds me of the time I worked over the phone and spoke a lot in English - at the end of the night, I felt like my jaw was going to fall from all the effort *lol*
