Finished! I always forget how long it takes to sew up a sweater. It took me 10-12 hours over several days. Some people dread seaming, but I actually enjoy this part of the process. I love to see the pieces come together. Anticipation builds with each stitch until finally it's done and ready to wear.
I had been warned that this yarn has a tendency to stretch out when it is washed, but it held it's shape and did not change at all after a soak in a warm bath.
The garter rib detail adds just the right amount of interest to the front panels, arms and collar.
