It is DONE!
Actually, it was done on Friday night, but I haven’t had chance to blog about it until now. Yes, the Charmed Sweater is finished and it fits. Really it does. I would show you a picture of my boyfriend modelling his new sweater but I didn’t finish it until 11.30pm, and Â he needed to get up at 4am to catch his flight, so not an ideal time to be snapping pictures. However, as proof, I can offer you:
Sorry, our lighting isn’t really up to a midnight photo shoot. But it’s done, he has it with him for his skiing trip, and I will try to get some better pictures when he returns.
Also, I should mention he gave an exemplary response to the gift of handmade knitwear, and managed to look properly chuffed with the finished sweater. He’s a terrible liar (one of his many excellent qualities) and so I’m going to take that as mission accomplished.
In the end, having a deadline proved to be a bonus as it prevented the second sleeveÂ languishingÂ in a pile for several weeks, although if I’d had more time there are a few little things I might have changed. But I consider this a first attempt, and I’m already scheming about what to knit him for next Winter…
