Finished At Last!

Finished the sweater for Rick - and although I am pleased with the result, I can't say I am sorry to see the end of it!

The colour is actually a lot bluer than this photo shows it to be.

It also seems a lot bigger than I expected - and hey, I did swatch - and I did measure accurately! But then it is meant to be a generous fit. It has taken me longer than any man's sweater I have ever knitted before - by the time I finished it only half an hour ago I was heartily sick of it!

This is the second time I have made this sweater. If I never see this pattern again it will be too soon!

Back to baby sweaters for me!
