I know this isn't really an original-- but at LAST I've finished my Hourglass Sweater! I started this about a year ago and then set it aside when I got to the sleeves. Then, last month, I decided to frog, refresh and re-knit! I took a break around the end of the month and then started knitting furiously in the last week and a half to get it all done-- just in time to put it away for summer! Ha!
The yarn is knitpicks.com Andean Silk in Sangria-- I used about 7 skeins total. I'm so excited that my first sweater fits and is wearable! It's not perfect-- my increases are still messy sometimes and I think I should have made the body a little longer-- (it may get longer once I've blocked it) but it's awesome!
