thermal is almost finished. i am so excited. it actually looks decent and i'm proud of it. i had the recipient close her eyes to try it on and it fits REALLY WELL! i can't wait until i get to see amber wearing the finished product. i hope she likes it. if she doesn't i'm going to give it to someone who does! i've been super obsessed with wanting to cast on some socks, but have refrained until thermal was finished. well all i have to do is block it and buy some buttons and sew them on. i will actually be finished by the deadline of her birthday. score.
