FO: Hourglass Sweater
This is the Hourglass Sweater from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I used 9 balls of Debbie Bliss Cathay (gorgeous yarn!) and made the smallest size. It's a little tight, but I think that's due to the gauge being a teeny bit off.

I it! I think I'll wear it tomorrow.

Very nice! I don't think it looks even a little tight.

That's it! That's the last straw!
I MUST purchase some good yarn and make a sweater for myself. Knowing that other people can make such fabulous garments as yours is just too much to bear.
I'm a boy, by the way.

That's beautiful, Mer! The color is so pretty!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.
