Here's the collarband. :)Now I just need to block it and sew in a button! This finish was a long time coming..a lot of tedious stockinette and even more tedious ribbing! I learned how to do a collarband though and that was actually cool! I impressed myself with my knitting skills. Now let's just hope after it's blocked and has a button that it'll fit my sister! I think it's going to be awhile before I take on another sweater..but if that while comes sooner than I thought it would, it will most likely be a lightweight sweater. This sucker got to be SO heavy and such a pain to take out of my knitting bag.

So here's the beginnings of the lace pattern:Oh, I also managed to take some better shots of my wedding shawl and my ishbel! This was the best shot I could take of my wedding shawl (for now!). I wore it when we went to see my MIL but I didn't get a shot of me in it. Next time.Ack! I nearly forgot the main reason why I wanted to post! I wanted to share this really yummy cookie recipe I found: dark chocolate toblerone cookies.
