I finished it on Christmas Eve! I just need to get my hands on it again so I can take a decent pic. I realize that you may not know I was working on this because I didn't blog it "just in case." But if you spend time on Ravelry or flickr then you've probably already seen this.
Here's a WIP picture with better light and an actual camera.
Pattern: Komi Cap from Mostly Mittens
Yarn: Knit Picks Palette
Needles: Addi Turbo US0
Time to Complete: I don't quite remember but I think it was about 20 days, def less than a month.
I'm a little worried that it's a smidge big for the recipient but I don't think he'll tell me so.
This is by far my most satisfying knit yet.
For the truly nerdy, here's a picture of the guts.

Yet another WIP.
The first of these is done but I need to redo the thumb because it's too tight. This WIP is also on hold until after the Hat of Insanity is done.
Pattern: Herringbone Mittens with Poms
Yarn: Cascade 220 (left over from the Sheep & Wool hat)
Needles: US4 & US6

Well, I woke up this morning to find this:

CPH is finally done! (and it only took a year)
I took this pic with my phone, there will be better pictures soon.
This is my first complete adult sweater and I love it. Seriously, it is so fucking awesome I may never take it off. Now, that being said, I may never make another sweater like this. I HATE the sewing up bit and quite frankly I'm not really that good at it. I do try to look at it as a way to better showcase my knitting, blah, blah, it doesn't matter.
Yarn: Jo Sharp Silk Road DK
Needles: US 5 and US 7 (I think)
Time to knit: a year!
Mods: I substituted a different yarn which also meant I had to change needles to get gauge. I did a single cable up each sleeve rather than a double which I felt would be too bulky.
My favorite part? Check out these awesome buttons! These are handmade by a local man named Francis who got the idea after his wife asked him to make some buttons for one of her projects. I bought mine here but I've also seen them here.
