FINALLY FINISHED THE DICKINSON PULLOVER!!!
I am so happy to finally be done with this sweater. I started it on November 16th and I finished yesterday, December 22, so it is just in time for Christmas. I am going to give it to my mother who is very... well endowed... in her... chest... area, so I had to make the largest size which took FOREVER. The yarn I used was Bernat Softee Chunky in Denim Heather. I had to buy all the yarn that that wal-mart had and then go to another wal-mart and buy some more (and I remembered to match the dye-lot this time). So, here is my third sweater. I'm so proud, and I hope my mother likes it.
The pictures posted are of the front, back, and a closeup of the Saxon-Braid from the back.
