Mandy’s Sweater update........ It's Finished!


It's finished my sweater from our knit-a-long that we were doing! And I'm wearing it!
I knitted the bottom and was working the sleeves, but didn’t think I had enough yarn to knit long sleeves so I made them short. And I still had a lot left of extra yarn left over! That bugs me a bit to have some left over but not enough to knit anything else, then you just have it sitting around taking up room in your stash! I try very hard not to have any left over! My sister suggested that I make the bottom longer. So I knit the bottom until there was none left! Yea!  IMG_6685
We decided to take picture when we went for a walk! Yes, that is Kerri waiting for us! Our favorite place to take them,  it was a little gloomy out! Thank you sister for taking super pictures!

Don’t you like the way the yarn changes color ? Here is  a close up of the cables that run up the sides and……….

I love the cables! They help add some detail and I think some shaping to the sweater, but you do put some increasing on the sides.

The back is pretty much the same as the front.

    1. Thanks Becky! It was Heide's idea to take them at the tree, and Kerri likes standing in the pictures! LOL! I think the color really popped out because it was so gloomy out, I think it looks a little bit lighter then.
