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  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 sleeve languishing 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…

    Well done. It looks great!! Although I cannot see on the pic whether you used stocking stitch all over, but I presume it is. How long did it take to knit altogether and did you use Lanark wool?

    Yay! Congrats on the lovely sweater and on meeting the knitting deadline!

    I’ve just started my first ever sweater for my husband. It makes me anxious like no other knit before. I feel like measuring it every few seconds and I’m driving myself slightly nuts with the constant note-taking. It’s not as terrible as I’m making it sound right now but certainly more difficult than knitting for myself – when I knit for myself, I feel much more open to taking risks than in this case.
