Finished Sweater
Well, here it is. I ended up talking with a lady in SC that makes felted sweaters, and because my sweater was so huge after I was done knitting it and trying to block it, I tried felting it.
I like it, but I had to be very careful felting it, because as we all know felting just happens. The texture is very interesting on this sweater now.
And I love the color. And I will wear it, that is important to me, that I actually will wear stuff I make.
Thanks to everyone on the forum for all the tips and suggestions I have picked up on my knitting adventures.

How wonderful that you were able to get help to make the sweater wear-able. And felting sweaters on purpose?! That's a novel idea! I've always done it by accident!

It looks very nice on you!
