Sweater


Finished My Ten Hour Sweater :)
I don't know how many hours it took me because I did not time it and I was working on it along with so many other projects... But anyway... I did complete yet another UFO (unfinished object) for those people who do not know "knit talk " :)
I used Homespun which I just love the coziness of when its on and I made it a bit smaller than the directions and I did a sort of picot Bind Off because I wanted a little stretch.. and I made it long sleeves which I did a little decreasing on and I did a seed stitch cuff.. :) Other than that.. I think its like the directions... :)

That's really pretty. Love the color and the pretty edging. Is this one for you?

You make me laugh. If I did that many modifications to a pattern, I'd claim I made it up myself!

Seriously though, I love it. The color is me!!! I just printed off the directions....I really need some sweaters. All I have is a black one, but that is not too cool in the summer. Thanks for sharing.

I love it. That homespun really is so soft and snuggly.

The sweater is really lovely, it has turned out well. I love you baby cardi too. It can be frustrating trying to keep pattern and stich count correct with lace, but the result is worth it
