The Final Sweater Reveal!

The button holes have been attached, and the buttons sewn on.  

I thought I might be pushing my luck with the afterthought button holes, but they went well. 

I would like to sincerely thank everyone for your kind comments about my spinning and subsequent crazy sweater making.  


Quite honestly, I am in love with this sweater!  

 I know I will get lots of use out of it.  In fact, I am wearing it right now.
