FO: Sweater(finally) for grandson...
I got the sweater all done that I made for my three year old grandson Drew.
Mistakes but learned a lot. The left arm up in the shoulder area got messed up. It was longer than it should have been and I sewed it into place anyway. Lot to learn but happy with it,
Whew!
Susie

I started hand knitting (10/01/2005) and got my embroidery machine for Christmas 2005. I had 2 Bond Incredible Sweater Machines given to me in Feb. of 2007 that I'm really enjoying. http://susies1955.myphotoalbum.com/

Wow, thanks everyone. You all make me feel 'so' good.
I had my two month anniversary on Thursday. The yarn shop owner wants to put a photo of my sweater on her site so she can show what a newbie can do. Isn't that cool????????????
Enjoy your Sunday,
Susie :XX:
