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. :)
