I posted this at my blog and I think on the KAL posting, but I never put it in the FOs, so here it is. My pride and joy. The most complex, intricate, beautiful thing I have ever completed. This garment was so completely out of my league when I started it that I never really thought I would finish it. But I did. It was a mother's day gift for my mom which I delivered to her in July. :-)
Wow! It looks so professional. I bet your Mom will wear it even when she doesn't need an extra sweater just so she can brag that you made it just for her!
There is no right way to knit; there is no wrong way to knit. So if anybody kindly tells you that what you are doing is "wrong," don't take umbrage; they mean well. Smile submissively, and listen, keeping your disagreement on an entirely mental level. They may be right, in this particular case, and even if not, they may drop off pieces of information which will come in very handy if you file them away carefully in your brain for future reference. ~Elizabeth Zimmerman
