Finally Finished The Sweater
I finally finished the sapphire sweater while sitting in a little honky tonk last night. I think the bartender was more excited than I was as she had seen it right after I had first started it.

I just have a couple of tails to weave in and it'll be completed. I'll try and shoot some pics when I get to a place where I can lay it out.

Now to start the matching hat

Absolutely fantastic, Mason!!! Perfect, perfect, perfect (that, or you hide your mistakes really well ). Nothing first time about it-- it looks like it's your 51st, not your first. Fits beautifully, and whatever it was that you were worried about with the sleeves is fine-- I never would have know. Congratulations!!!
