Ta Daaa...

It's finished!
My green cotton sweater is now moved from my Unfinished Projects to Done! I'll have to add this one to my De-Stash Along 2010 Project list hosted by Missy at Crafting With Craft Hair because I had all the supplies I needed in my stash.

The yarn is 100% Egyptian cotton from King Tut. The pattern is Rosemary Drysdale and was so much fun that I will probably make another in a ribbon yarn (after the wedding dress, that is). I love the lacy hem and the patterned sleeves. I told Handsome last night that making the sleeves was such fun that I could see myself just making these sleeves for a while!

So, there you have it, my friends. A finished cotton sweater that I'll look forward to wearing year-round. Back to the studio now. There's a lot to do in the next few weeks.

Thanks for all your kind words for Kes (and me). I promise to let you know what we find out when we visit the vet tomorrow.

Well, may I be the first to say that it turned out beautifully! You should be very proud of the job you did! I think it's great that you can knit sweaters and cool stuff! Crocheted stuff doesn't 'wear' so well, so I really wish I had the knack to knit! Enjoy!

I just found your blog today - I'm not much for knitting & crocheting - I'm so slow! However, the sweater is beautiful & your hair is fabulous! I was super short & now mine's growing out - and now you have me questioning because it's in that weird awkward I hate my hair phase! Anyway - it's adorable :)

Your sweater turned out so pretty and I hope that you enjoyed your concert. I could see the picture last night, but it wouldn't let me bring it up. I was going to hop on before I went to work and leave a note, but I was running short on time this morning. Have a wonderful Easter. Your Missouri Friend
