I Finally got the sweater finished right before Christmas. It ended up working out well, not being too big or too small and no major disasters happened before I sent it. I couldn't stop taking pictures of it once I was done; it was like it was my child. Guess where the people live who ordered it? Hawaii. I'm not kidding, how crazy is that? I think its a sign.
The woman who ordered it gave it to her grandfather who just had his 70th wedding aniversery. The reason he wanted a wool sweater in Hawaii? To sit by the ocean and mend his fishing nets of course. She even sent me a photo of him in the sweater. Its hilarious; I think I'm going to frame it.
