Completed. Finished. Done!

In January, this sweater was just a figment of my imagination.


Approximately 600 bobbles later, not anymore! Um...That's not an exaggeration either.


The pattern was Tyrolean, by Sarah Dallas from Rowan's Vintage Knits.


Knitting this was certainly a labor of love. I knit both fronts and both sleeves at the same time, and highly recommend doing that. Not only since it makes the pieces identical, but because I hate backtracking.


I still have the embroidery to finish, but I consider this sweater completed. I'm proud that I finished it and did the proper thing by re-doing the back when it wasn't the right size.

And thanks to the recent cold spell, I didn't even need to wait until September to wear it!
