There isn’t a whole lot to say except it’s done. I enjoyed every stitch but I’m glad it over. Everyone is glad it’s over. I haven’t even blocked it yet but couldn’t wait another minute to show it to you.
There’s the original below made by Elizabeth Zimmermann. I think after mine is blocked it will fit even better. The sleeves on mine a just a bit wonky but again…it’s amazing what a little blocking can fix.
Sorry the edges are blurry. We’d sent my damaged camera back to Canon for repair but it’s still not up to 100%. But the sweater looks pretty good…
I love the fit, the color, especially the color and all that shaping. Just look at it.
The photo session didn’t last too long since it’s sweater hater weather outside. It was over 90 degrees here today…..I gotta get this thing off.
Oh, before I forget. Finally count on balls of yarn….15!!! Yes, 15. Same size, same gauge, etc. It is very possible I miscounted, some balls got sucked into the black hole of knitting where inches, lost needles and stitch markers reside. I don’t have an answer nor can I offer an educated guess. The original took 10. Chalk this up to one of life’s great mysteries.
