I can't model it unless there's someone home to take a picture, and I'm not sure the kids can do it well. Maybe another day.

I don't have a full length mirror that I can stand far enough away from.

Is the sweater really thick? It looks thick. Actually, it looks like tapestry!

Absolutely awesome!!!

Years and years (and years) of knitting, and I still cannot do intarsia patterns well.
So I'm in awe of anyone who can.

It's just beautiful, Ingrid.

It's actually not as thick as a stranded sweater since it's one layer. It is made from superwash wool, though, so I'm sure it will be warm.

Thank you everyone for the compliments. I'm humbled!
