Finished Sweater

I got my sweater blocked. It blocked up nicely.
I purposely knit it long in the body so it would cover my rear. I also chose not to go with ribbing, but a hem instead, which I like the looks of.
The seams in the pants are a technique my mom taught me. She used to put them in my dads pants. Oh, and the grey hair is from my mom too!
Thanks Mom!


  1. Congratulations on the LOVELY sweater! A fellow knitter, I really appreciate the knitting posts. I also loved the one on baptism! I am gathering up projects finished this year to take to our county fair tomorrow! Sweaters are my favorite items to knit, but I didn't finish any this year!

  2. The sweater turned out beautifully, Auntie Lou! You did an excellent job! I look forward to seeing what other projects you have lined up to create next!

    And you do have a wonderful mother!

  6. I can't believe how wonderfully the sweater turned out! It's gorgeous!! (BTW-I love your hair too~I wouldn't have guessed the color by your profile picture)
