At last....

fls3
My February Ladies Sweater *cast on July 10, buttons on August 25*

Yay! It's off the needles. Forgive the sassy picture, I was getting a little silly running back and forth to my timer trying to get a decent picture...I positively hate having my picture taken but finishing this sweater gave me sense of pride, I gave myself permission to get stupid and show off a bit. Woo hoo! I love it! I never thought I would say I love a sweater I knit - I mean, I am a sock knitter, afterall. A sock knitter who just purchased 5 skeins of Madelintosh Worsted in Tern, em.

p.s. thank you flintknits for adapting this pattern for grown ups, I love the top down construction, the garter yoke, and even the never-ending gull lace...love.

It's so cute, and you look adorable in that picture. You definitely made the right button choice too. I don't think you can call yourself "just a sock knitter" anymore!

I almost purchased some Madeline Tosh Worsted, but stopped. I do not need more yarn. I wonder how long that will last?

Gorgeous!! I'm finally catching up on all my blog-buddies & look what a gorgeous sweater you've knit!! You look great in it! I was going to vote for the metal buttons, but the wooden ones are absolutely perfect. :)

This will sound crazy to you (wait first I have to compliment you on a gorgeous sweater! Wow! No wonder you want to knit more sweaters. Good job). Anyway--the crazy part. When I think of you, I picture Christine Chenowith. (Is that her name? The sassy blond broadway star from Wicked who's in Pushing Daisies?) Now, I know you don't look like that. I wonder if I will be able to adjust my image. And where o where did that image come from?
