nona's Blue

First, a rhetorical question -- aren't 3-day weekends great?  Next, some exciting news -- nona's blue, meaning she's finished her NBaT.  No illusions this time, I'm really done.

The other new bluie this week is our honorary knit alonger, Alison, who completed a store sample NBaT for her LYS.

In other NBaT news:

Amy has finished the front, back, and neckline of her T.

Beth is just starting her T using a bright, springy color combination.

Cathy is ready to sew her pieces together and has posted a fabulous description with pictures explaining how to turn the hem using a provisional cast on. 

A warm welcome to 4 new NBaT knit alongers -- Allie, Jennifer K., Leica, and Phoebe -- be sure to check their blogs and follow their progress.

NBaT looks like a perfect fit! The colors are great and the flowers are a nice touch. I love how each and every one was personalized somehow. Great pattern.

Well done, Nona. I have been searching for the following quotation since your "Denial & Misery" post of April 27th. It is even more appropriate today.
It was written by Perry Klass for Knitter's #44.

"Everything gets complicated if you tangle it up enough, but every experienced knitter knows how to deal with tangles. You pick away at them carefully and patiently, you sort out the strands and then you set to work and make something beautiful.

Love the flowers - and the fact they are on the back- nice detailing, that. And a great colour. Well done.

Beautiful! I love the color combination and -- like everyone else -- the flowers, too.

Nona! Sorry I've been gone and missed out on so much, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE that you put the flowers on the back. Very cool. Once again, you rock. ;-)

I'm now all done and dusted on my t-shirt and I love it! I've posted pics on my blog, and on the project page I set up (link in the blog post).

Thank you for being a great hostess!
