Finished sweater

My sweater is done! Yay!! The top-down raglan that I cast on rather spontaneously back in January is finally done. I procrastinated on this one big time, but it's finally finished.

Here it is in its unblocked state. Dany seems very interested in it. But, I didn't like the fact that some bits were curling here and there, so I gave it a good soak, and lay it out again.

It's going to take a while for it to dry completely, so I won't be able to take any pictures of how it looks on me until then. I did try it on periodically as I was knitting it, so I'm not worried about the final fit.

Forgive the crappy photos =D

Karen, it looks great! Can't wait to see it on you. I have about 5(!) UFOs for other people and then I swear I'm gonna make myself something!

I am excited to see a modeled picture of your fine sweater. Congrats on finishing it.

BTW - I just love the pic of Danny inspecting your work. It's too cute.

Holy crap, a sweater! Congratulations on finishing it, I can't wait to see it modeled!

This should inspire me to finish my Nothin' But A T Shirt already. All the pieces are done, it "just" needs a neckband and to be seamed all together. Um, yeah. So still considerable work to do. =P

Becky - Thanks! I'll wear it to rehearsal on Sunday so you can see it :D

Marie - Thanks for the congratulations! My cats seem to love knitted things :) Except they hate getting their picture taken most of the time.

Adrienne - I'll put pictures up soon. Believe it or not, it's still drying on my office floor. And I'm cheering you on to get your Nothin' But A T finished! Go Adrienne! You're not far now!! Woohoo!!!
