i've been working on this sweater for about 3 1/2 weeks and i finally finished it yesterday. today is my first day to wear it. i'm very excited about it because i designed this one myself and it turned out how i wanted it too. i recently bought the book The Knitter's Handy Book of Sweater Patterns: Basic Designs in Multiple Sizes & Gauges by ann budd. i was able to use this book to come up with my own pattern. another thing i did when knitting this sweater was to knit both sleeves at the same time. i just cast on two sleeves onto one needle. it was great because i was knitting them at the same time i didn't have the problem of one sleeve longer than the other.

i'm impressed too! by the way, my sis-in-law pointed out your quilting book to me in my den tonight, and I exclaimed that i was a horrible friend and that i had borrowed it about four years ago from you.

This is a very becoming sweater on you. (Did I just say "becoming"??) Nice color and cool scoop neck.

I'm going to have to learn one of these days.
