I finally got this beast done and I'm liking it more every minute I wear it.
First - every piece of this garment has been knit at least 3 times over with the neck being knit 4 times... :teehee:
But she's done now and is she ever warm. I think I'll have to give it a name...
The photo aint that good but you get the idea.
The sweater pattern was for a cowl and long sleeves but I made it a turtle neck at first... a horrible one, two and 3 but fourth time I decided I what I really wanted was a neck that did not choke me so just frogged back and added only a few ribs at the end.
The sleeves are 3/4 length as I hate to have them down by my wrists and have to keep rolling them up... but there, it's done now and I hold it no ill-will :lol:
And at least I got it done while the weather was still cool...

Rats - my computer won't let me use the paper clip icon...

Well, it feels awfully anti-climatic to finally get a picture of the darned thing on the site.
I had to give up on my camera and sit for the one at the top of my screen with my hubby pushing the button... sort of like the blind leading the blind...:teehee:

Worth perservering for, it looks great. Sometimes things go that way with the ripping and redoing, but you finally got it right. The neck and sleeve length look good.
