Almost an FO

Orangina? No. Gabby? No. Tivoli? Yes, please. Well, since my failure with Orangina, I've been knitting Tivoli non-stop (except at school, where I'm working with Gabby). I started last weekend and knit a-skein-a-day for 3 days, then another 2 skeins in 3 days, so I guess it's a quick knit. I haven't bind it off, since I actually still have another inch to go, but I'm running out of yarn. I'm using Knitpicks Shine in Blush, but I only have 5 skeins, while the pattern called for 6. I have another skein in Orchid, which I think will look good together. Here it is now...

Forgive the blurry picture, my flabby arm, my messy hair and my fat belly. I promise I'll post a better picture once it's done. The yarn is really nice to work with, smooth and shiny, BUT it does make me sneeze a lot.
It's my school's 55th anniversary tomorrow, so I'll be busy the whole day. And guess what, since we'll all be busy tomorrow, we got an extra holiday for Saturday, which means.....Yay!! I can pick up my Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince early in the morning! I can't believe there's only about 30 hours to go, can't wait!
I hereby stated that I won't be knitting even a stitch before I finish reading HP6.
And what's more, I'll be 18 in 3 days!!! Can't wait? Hardly.

Oh no! what happen with Orangina?
Tivoli looks great though! Waiting to see the finish product. I'm starting this one after Orangina.

You look fine to me! Well done on finishing, it looks a really pretty colour too, I've heard lots of good comments about this yarn.
I'm waiting to get Harry Potter too, although I'll be third in the family to get a chance to read it! My eldest has first go although I'm not sure he'll do it this time but the youngest will most certainly want it as soon as possible!
