I really can't believe it. I even had a different post planned for today, but after 15 months and 10.25 skeins of alpaca yarn, the Plumber Sweater is complete! [Cue Audience Applause]
Once I got past the first few decreases, the rounds started going quite fast and I became obsessed with finishing. Finally having to put it down with less than 3 rounds to go because I couldn't keep my eyes open.
Now, a couple of days later the rounds are completed, the bind off is completed, the Kitchener stitched armpits are completed, all of the ends are woven in and I can't really believe it. I just want to sit here and stare at it.
My very first knitted sweater is complete! Isn't it pretty? ;-)
If you're interested in the sweater's progress here are links to part 6, part 5, part 4, part 3, part 2 and finally the reason why it was started.
I'm very happy to have this sweater completed and excited to give it to our neighbor, I sure hope it fits.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday! Please head over to The Wonder Why Gal's blog and see what the others have been up to.
