If the many compliments I received at church were any indication, I would say the sweater was a smashing success. WOO HOO!
I can now say with certainty, the sweater demon has been slain. All of a sudden I feel as though a whole new world has been opened to me. I feel a sense of awe and power knowing I can, with the correct tools and calculations, create a beautiful garment that fits (insert angelic singing and heavenly rays here)!
Things I learned from this project:
1. It pays to check gauge (I know, duh!). I had to go down two needle sizes.
2. Intarsia. Much easier than it looks.
3. One can certainly get by with a little help from one's friends. I could not have finished this sweater without the invaluable tips from Erica. Thanks Erica!!!
Here is an obligatory dancing photo a la Becky.
I think this calls for celebration.
