After two and a half years, I finally finished a very special sweater. Why is it special you ask? This sweater pattern is what inspired to learn how to knit.
In February 2014, about 7 months after I started knitting, I decided it was time. Because I was still a fairly new knitter the beginning was very slow going and riddled with mistakes. After knitting about 1/3 of the back piece I got distracted by other projects and put it this sweater on the back-burner.
In 2015, I picked it back up again, knit a few more rows and got distracted again.
A few weeks ago, I decided that enough was enough. I really wanted to finish this sweater because it's such a special project for me. I ended up finishing it in about 3 weeks.
It fits perfectly and I can't wait to wear it this Winter!
