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!
