Looks great and I really like the look of the pattern. Hope you do get it finished this year. I have a couple of things hanging around like that.

There's nothing like wearing a sweater you made yourself...it's like getting a soft, warm hug from your favorite person!

Thank you all! I held up the left front to myself at a mirror last night, and I'm getting SOOOOO excited about finishing this!

Maybe it will be ready in time for me to wear it at SAFF this year! (SAFF is the Southeastern Animal Fiber Fair in the mountains of North Carolina at the end of October.)

How great that you're going to finally finish this! I have some projects that have been sitting at least that long too.

It's really a beautiful color, can't wait to see it all done!

The pattern is in a book that you can still buy, called "The Learn to Knit A Sweater Book".
Here's a link to buy it on Amazon:
