Aww, so cute. I love the colour of yours!

If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

The northern downpour sends its love.

Yay, a happy ending!

It looks really nice on both of you. It's so nice that you found a use for your first sweater. If my first sweater didn't fit I'd just be so miserable, I don't know if I'd be able to do the same sweater again to try and make it fit.

Anyway, great job on both of them Smiley


there are two things that I don't believe in: coincidence and leprechauns

Gah! So pretty! I loves them! I wish I had time to work on my $1.50 cardigan right now instead of the insane amount of Christmas knitting I need to do. You have such patience!

My alarm clock still holds a grudge from the time I threw it at the wall

thanks for all the lovely comments, everyone!!

i forget to mention the part where I technically knit the sweater 2 1/2 times... after I finished the sleeves on the one in my size, they were too bulky for me.  so i frogged the ENTIRE sleeves, and re-knit them in the size i did for the original sweater.  oy.

oh, and the yarn is knitpicks' merino style, first in cinnamon and then in moss.

and yes my sister loves me to pieces. Smiley  i gave it to her for chanukah AND her birthday... which she totally understood cause she gets how long it takes to knit the damn thing. Smiley
