I did it, I finish my first sweater. Picture
This sweater is what brought me to this web site. My daughter was cleaning out her back-pack durning the winter break. When she throw away all her paper and plus my pattern . I google around until I found YOU. I begged for someone to have the right Mag. that I got the pattern from. All I needed was 1/4 of the patten and I was going to be done. After I finish it, It just set around waiting for me to sew it up. After froging a sock for the tens time I fininllly put the sock down and picked up the sweater. I finished it this morning and wore it to the Dentist office. I'm going to take it with me on Vacation.

Carla: Have fun at MOA. It is superb, but wear good walking shoes! Also, if you have time try and get to the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago if you have never been. I grew up about 100 miles east of Chicago and I always loved going to that fabulous museum. It has everything you could want to look at. Don't let the name fool you!

The sweater if fabo!
