Amigarabita, that's so nice about your sister appreciating the sweater so much. It's so great to have your work so appreciated! It sounds like a great holiday for you all!
Thanks for the kind wishes.
Enjoy your new knitting project! ...I know I'll be enjoying mine! I'm working on one of my pattern-book projects. I've just about completed the first project, and I'm on to the second! I'm having so much fun!
