Finished at Last!

Well, it's finished and it fits!  I got it off the needles this evening and got it on the woolly board for blocking.  This sweater was a great learning experience.  I have decided that I'm a big fan of doing sweaters in this gansey style.  What I really like is picking up the sleeve stitches around the arm hole and working it to the cuff.  It really allows you to get the length of the sleeve to what is comfortable for you.

Putting it on the woolly board was also interesting.  Maybe I should have read the directions....


  1. Great knit!
    I haven't tried a woolly board, looks interesting.

  2. Yes....I enjoy these kind of sweaters as well...made a few...looking for patterns all the time.
