KAL: It’s Done!!!

I can’t believe I can say this but… my sweater is done!  I have been busy using all my free time(is there much of that with two kids?) to knit and try to get it done.  Here is a sneak peek picture of me wearing it.  I will take better pictures once I’ve blocked it.  For those of you non-knitters, this means I soak it and stretch it to the way it should really fit to kinda have the yarn ‘memory’ set.  It helps give the sweater some shape in areas that I might have knit tighter than others.  The sweater looks pretty good right now, but I have a few areas that I want to make look better. 


Overall I am super thrilled to have completed something at this level and proud of myself.  Now I think it will go back to smaller projects because part of me got tired of such a heavy piece and I like working with pieces that I can finish in less than a week.  Plus I do not like taking pictures of myself and would prefer my knitted pieces be on cute babies or kids.  Even after taking on such a large project for myself, I already have something new on my needles and I am working on tweeking a project that will be Christmas gifts for the girls.  I hope to also add some new items to my Etsy shop in October, so stay tuned for those soon.
