Just in Time for Spring.

...or at least those chilly spring mornings*. All that stands between me and a finished sweater is 
at my kitchen counter, 3:30 p.m.
  1. nine rows of ribbing over 239 stitches;
  2. a final blocking;
  3. tacking down two pockets; and 
  4. sewing on six buttons.
I really really wanted this done by the end of February, but at this point, I'll settle for March 2.

...back to ribbing...

*yes, even in Georgia, we have chilly spring mornings! we might even be freezing on Wednesday!

  1. Over 2,000 stitches, blocking, pockets, and buttons? If it was me, I might say the second week in March. Since it's you, I'm willing to place a large bet on March 2. If I thought Charlie could help sew on buttons I'd say March 1st!

  3. Maybe by the time I get my sweater finished it will be fall again! Your sweater is going to be beautiful (and warm!).

  6. That looks exactly like my gin and tonic- almost ready to attach the sleeves on that one. Yes am sure it'll get a little bit of wear this season.
