Girlfriend's sweater



I finished girlchild's sweater. I really like it for the most part. I used Knitpicks "swish" which was lovely to knit with. I had ordered 7 skeins, and unless the kids hid a skein or 3 I used about 6.5 of those skeins. I have steamed the life out of this project because, for some reason, the edges roll more than a bear in a circus. I ripped the bottom out 3 times and then gave up because I was afraid that the yarn would become exhausted from all of the ripping. I don't know that I'll ever knit this particular pattern again, but I know that there are elements of it that I will use again. All I need to do is slap a few button loops on it and a few buttons and she'll be ready for her first day at kindergarten.

She looks so cute and happy in her pretty new sweater! You did a great job on it and you can't tell that it's rolling a lot. It looks good.
Happy belated Birthday to your son, and the shrug turned out great too!
I'm sorry, I'm trying to catch up.....
