Phew! Finally Done

I'm so happy to be done with this sweater! I put off the finishing and blocking for a week after the knitting was complete, but finally took care of those last few details. Full notes on modifications etc are on my blog - - but I will say that I am very happy with how it turned out. I wore it to work yesterday and already got a compliment on it, which feels good after all that work!

Mine is done too!

Here it is, my Tangled Fields of Gold.

I am just so happy and satisfied! The full details and more pictures are on my blog:

This was a great way to mark my first year as a knitter. I've noticed there are quite a few of us Freshmen on this knit-a-long, so rock on my compatriots! This sweater is totally doable!

She's nearly there

I'm really excited about finishing the knitting on this project. It was a great knit and I'm almost sad it's over. Almost.

I still have the finishing details to worry with, weaving in the ends, sewing on buttons, and the like. And I'm hoping the tangled bits don't look quite as puckered after I block it. But all in all I can't wait to wear it.
