I finished it!!
Actually, I should be more embarrassed than proud as I started this in June.
This happens with me.
I get near the finish line and lose all steam.
I used Thanksgiving as motivation to finish it.
This is a free pattern from Lion Brand and I used the video tutorial from Very Pink Knits.
I had to rip out the button band and re do it.
Thanks to everyone who gave me tips on redoing the band.
I finished and blocked it the Monday of Thanksgiving week.
It dried quickly and I was able to wear it on Thanksgiving day!
Yarn: Plymouth Encore
Needles: 4.5mm (collar, rib and band) and 5.0mm (body).
I learned a lot and also learned where I need much more practice.
Now that this is done, I’m focusing on my current sweater knit – Dockside Sweater by Two Of Wands.
Have a great week!
