Berroco Andoa Sweater
This was a record fast finish for me. Man's size, all texture, and finished in 9 days. I started Thursday Feb 1st and finished Saturday Feb 10th in time for a gift. Unfortunately, my camera couldn't get really got photos of the texture, but you get the idea. More pics on the blog, if you care.

Wow I love it. I'm amazed that it only took you 9 days ... did you eat and sleep too or just knit?
