Made with yarn sent to me by a sweet friend in Ireland, this sweater took me just over 2 weeks to finish.

It goes in the Christmas pile. Only 6 more gifts left to complete! How many days do I have left? lol

This is darling!  I don't have the interweave knits mag yet, is a kid size sweater?  I also admire your ambition for handmade gifts for the holidays, if only I had the time...

Thanks! No, it's an adult, size small sweater.

I'm a stay at home mom with plenty of time on my hands. I have started early though. I promised myself that I wouldn't stay up the entire week before christmas ever again.

Sweet! :-)

I just bought some yarn for this yesterday, can't cast on until I have another sweater off the needles, it's nice to see somebody else's one finished!

I love the pink! Can I be on your Christmas gift list? (joking, of course!)

Oooh, it's gorgeous! I'd been thinking about making it for myself, but your giving it to your friend made me think . . . Oh man, my best friend's getting an AWESOME present this year.

PS. Did you knit to the pattern's gauge?

No. If I wanted to go up a needle and a half than I would have gotten gauge. I would have been knitting on a 10.5us, and it just looked ridiculous.

I've heard a couple of people say that they had trouble getting gauge. I have no idea why. I didn't use the recommended yarn and that's why I thought I didn't get it.
