finished sweater!

I finished the boy's sweater, and there are bonuses all around:

1. the obvious bonus - I finished the sweater! I ripped a fair bit of this back since I started it so long ago, and the boy at age 13 is growing exponentially. If I knit or sew him something, I have to build in growth and still knit or sew fast enough to catch him at a stage where it will fit!

2. using up this cotton blend yarn - it was taking up space in the stash, and with the Knitter's Frolic coming up, making any kind of room is a good thing

3. The boy likes it and wears it! Can't be anything but happy about that!

Just a note - there will probably not be a post on Friday - since it's a holiday, we will be at the cottage, and there will be a turkey to cook and people to see, and generally just a busy weekend.

Happy Easter to All!

Lovely sweater!

I was trying to find a way to come to knitters frolic.
Not sure it will work out for this year. Maybe next year.
