9-2-12 Finally added the buttons and now it is officially finished!!!!
2-12-12 Well I’m calling it finished even though I still need to buy and sew on the buttons. I love it! Overall I’m very happy with the way it turned out especially since this is the first time I have done so much seaming and I was really nervous about that part. I did mess up one of the first big cables on the back but didn’t realize it until I was halfway through the back and could really notice the pattern and decided that was my artistic contribution to the sweater! I’ve had my eye on this sweater for awhile, love love love the cables, and am so glad I finally made it!
I started the back in October but stopped to work on some Christmas gift projects and didn’t start again until January. Since then I’ve been working on it as much as I could and was determined to have it finished so that could hopefully wear it at least some this winter.
I also really love the yarn. It is a bit scratchy but wonderfully wooly and very warm! Once I get the buttons on I will have to take some better pictures but I was too excited about basically being finished that I had to take some and wear it!
