WHOO HOO! I win!!!!





I have finished my first sweater. :) Well, almost finished. I need to find some buttons. :)

You know, I hear a lot of people complain about seaming but it was no where near as bad as I have previously heard. Actually, it was pretty darn enjoyable, much like hand-sewing. Yes, I know, I'm a bit nuts -- I like hand sewing (well, mending, as I've yet to hand sew anything substantial) to using a sewing machine.

But enough of that! SWEATER!! Baby sweater!! Now I need to find some very cute buttons for it and then send it off to the new recipient. :)

That looks great! Well done! Now, you can make a sweater for yourself. It's not hard! All it takes is determination which I know you have in spades.

And you can still use a wool sweater in the East Bay. It gets chilly in the winter.

Would it help if I challenged you to a sweater making duel??

*grin* I *WILL make myself a sweater -- but I have TOO much to do right now to contemplate it. :) Baby clothes, a large shawl, a bunch of things for people who donated to Knitters W/O Borders....

I may try to do one in the fall or next winter. We'll see. :)

*laughs* Actually, it's going far far away -- so unless I get pictures, I won't get to witness the messy things upon the Evil Baby Sweater. :)

And thanks!! :)
