View Full Version : FINALLY FINISHED THE DICKINSON PULLOVER!!!
12-23-2007, 03:34 PM
:woohoo: I am so happy to finally be done with this sweater.:woohoo: I started it on November 16th and I finished yesterday, December 22, so it is just in time for Christmas. I am going to give it to my mother who is very... well endowed... in her... chest... area, so I had to make the largest size which took FOREVER. The yarn I used was Bernat Softee Chunky in Denim Heather. I had to buy all the yarn that that wal-mart had and then go to another wal-mart and buy some more (and I remembered to match the dye-lot this time). So, here is my third sweater. I'm so proud, and I hope my mother likes it.
The pictures posted are of the front, back, and a closeup of the Saxon-Braid from the back.

It looks really fancy.... GOOD JOB!

How beautiful! Wonderful job! :thumbsup:

One word...wow! That is beautiful! If my son knitted me a sweater I'd be thrilled, because he took the time to make it for me and I wouldn't really care how it came out....but I'd be overly thrilled with this sweater, because it is so beautiful!
Are you going let us know what her reaction was??!!!!:yay:
01-07-2008, 02:07 PM
oh, yeah... sure, I didn't even think to tell about her reaction.
She was very excited and immediately tried the sweater on but had to take it off after a few seconds because it was too hot. She was a little sad to see how big the sweater was (though it fits her perfectly, she doesnt want to be reminded of her size) but it looks SOOO good on her, it is really slimming and is very flattering to her figure.

Please, post a picture of her wearing it from the chin down if she doesn't what to show her face. We'd all like to see it on a body. Your work is wonderful too. :thumbsup:
