I finished Sarah's sweater. I think it looks great. She has worn it a few times already. She asked that I not put sleeves on, I said OK! Come fall I will add the sleeves on, as it is more practical. But right now capped sleeves are working.
The steeking went just fine! here are a couple of photos. One prior to steeking and the next steeked and cut.
Note the cute lady bug buttons, chosen by Sarah herself. I think tomorrow will be a day to start Catherine's version of the above sweater.
You know what is funny about this sweater? Since I knit it from the top down, the "flowers" are upside down. This is supposed to be knit from bottom up. Gee I wonder, can I knit from bottom up all one piece in the round? I think I will try that with Catherine's. At least her color blobs might look like flowers, but I will be certain to mess something else up as I experiment with a new (to me) technique.
