I FINALLY finished this summer sweater I was doing for a swap on Raverly.  I started out hating this since it's such a loose knit and I'm a super tight knitter.  But after I tried it on, I really love it.  I almost want to make another one for myself.  Smiley

I'm impressed anytime anyone finishes a sweater since I learned to knit! But that's really nice.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I used this pattern:

I did modify it a bit since it wants you to do a couple of the boarders separately then sew them back on....doesn't make sense why you'd have to it that way.  Why not just knit them all together to begin with....so that's what I did.

Very nice sweater

Do you have a knitting machine hidden somewhere? Or do you hire little gnomes to knit for you??? It seems like you have a new FO every day! Smiley  Or maybe you've learned to knit with toes and feet??? lol  Either way, I'm so jealous of your super-fast-knitting-ninja skills Wink
