Some pictures

Here are the pictures promised on an eariler post (and on Craftster):

This is the start of the Ironman triathlon in Madison 2 weeks ago. There are 2,076 people swimming in that lake! Can you spot me?

This is me (far left) with some of my friends whom I trained with over the summer. Most everyone else is in normal, non-racing clothes b/c most everyone in that group finished WAAAAY ahead of me. The guy with his arm around me finished around 11 1/2 hours - my time was 14:42. But you know what? It was still light outside when he finished, so he never got to experience the pleasure of wearing a glow in the dark necklace. I feel so sorry for him. (Okay, not really. I'd love to be good enough to have a finishing time of 11:30.)

This is proof that I'm actually working on something from one of my KALs - the Union Square Market Pullover. It seems to be going so slowly, probably b/c a)the needles are size 3, and b) I keep working on other things during this sweater. My hope is to have it done by mid-October.

This is the back of a sweater vest for Hayden. I like to knit him something new for his class pictures every year, and since those happen sometime in September and I live in Nashville, a full-blown sweater is usually way too hot. Hence the decision for a sweater vest. I'm using the Hamish pattern out of Rowan Junior. The front of the sweater is going to have navy ribbing, then that wonderful orange stripe for 4 rows, navy for 4 rows, then the rest of it orange. I'll take a picture of the finished product when it's available - which, if everything works out the way I've planned, will be this coming Tuesday night. Pictures are Wednesday.

Here is a picture of the little man who is going to be the recipient of said vest. Adorable, ain't he? I tend to think so - but then again, I'm biased.

And this, my friends, is the most beautimous Butterfly. Isn't she stunning? Before my husband took this picture, I had run outside, so that's why I'm not all dolled up. I should've gotten him to take a picture Saturday night before I went out dancing b/c I looked really hot that night.

This is a closeup shot of no, not my boobs, but of the Butterfly detail. I took it by myself and couldn't manage to aim the camera at anything other than my chest. Sorry they're not anything spectular to look at - but isn't the lacy mohair???
