Finally done!


Today I finally completed Una's sweater, which I knit from this pattern. It was really easy, even for an "intermediate beginner" like myself. What took so long was getting the nerve up to seam it. I have never been good at seaming, but this book, a birthday gift from my sister, really helped. I wish I'd had some gorgeous yarn to use for it, but it looks like she will probably outgrow it by next year anyway.

  2. You did a beautiful job on the sweater. Seams aren't my favorite thing to do either. I'll have to check out the book.
    God bless,
