I, High Speed, O.C.D Knitter...

Previously in my post about my handmade red beret I mentioned that I was going to try to tackle a sweater...I did. I tackled that baby in one week and I even followed the pattern! (although, I have to confess one sleeve is a tad different from the other because I didn't follow the pattern so great on sleeve #1. But you can't tell...s'all good) I am so very pleased that it is just unbelievable. I don't think I will be knitting anymore sweaters in the near future. I accomplished my goal and I couldn't be happier...and besides if I knit another I'll never wear it, because I've already decided that I am wearing this one for the rest of my life...

The pattern. WHICH I FOLLOWED ALL BY MYSELF!!!!!!!!!!!

Bulky Bernat Roving, dark gray yarn. I think the sweater took about 5 balls of the stuff.

Tobin James loves to help roll yarn...

Sleeves in the making.


Looks like the picture on the pattern, right!?


And look! A working hood!


This picture epitomizes me-ness...
...and the sweater is pretty cool too.

Hey! I saw that live! And it's cute :-) I didn't realize that you made it; if I had I would have gawked over it, trust me.
