Every year I set out to complete one sweater for myself. I always start out like gangbusters right after Christmas……and then get waylaid by the inevitable gifts I need to complete. A baby sweater here…a prayer shawl there….a kiddo that needs a hat…..and there my sweater ends up sitting. I casted this sweater on in February of 2012 and am wearing it completed today on November 16th. I have mentioned in previous posts that I have had this sweater at about 95% complete for months but just couldn’t seem to bring myself to complete the last 5%. I finally kicked it into gear this past weekend and sewed up all of the seams, added some necessary buttons and snaps, and called it done…FINALLY!
Here is the yolk that I completed…awhile ago
And here is the completed sweater:
It turned out a little big, but nothing I can’t live with. I of course have matching socks that are to only be worn with this sweater.
And of course, I already have my next sweater waiting to be knit…just need to take the leap and order the yarn already…..
