The Back

I took today off since I was going to drop off my parents at the airport in the middle of the day, so there would be no sense of going to work. I still got up early because David still had to go to work, so I used the early morning quiet time and finished sewing the pieces together! I am SO HAPPY it is done! This is the first time I sewed anything with sleeves and I am not sure if I am very happy with the results, but I suppose you really can't tell what was wrong with it. I'll need a lot more practice, that's for sure.

So the parents are gone, back to Cali, then to Taiwan. I'll be seeing them in 6 months though. And don't worry, they left me plenty of knitting projects to keep me busy!

Beautiful! I remember seeing that pattern somewhere in my travels and seriously thinking about purchasing it. I'm kicking myself for not doing it now. Great job!

Hear that thunk? That was my jaw dropping.

The sweater is well worth the wait.

Beautiful job!
