Read all about it! The sweater is done! In 15 days start to finish: a cabled V-neck adult sized “Cricket Sweater”. Usually I’m pretty happy about finishing any project but this one was under pressure. My daughter’s birthday is January 3rd so I thought I had plenty of time to finish when I put the first stitches on those size 5 needles November 30th until I realized she would be coming home from college December 14th. It wouldn’t have been so bad but I was combining two different patterns to get the sweater I wanted for her and as with any pattern, the stitches have to work out. A lot of counting and starting over on every piece happened along with a lot of late nights. But I’m thrilled to have finished just in time to pick her up at the airport. I do have to say, however, not a lot of housework or grocery shopping got done.
