Son's Sweater Completed

After all the yarn breaks and frays that I moan about in an earlier posting, I finally finished my son's Christmas sweater. He chose the color and the plain stitching. It's only 4 days late, so not too bad. The challenge was making sure that the 20+ breaks/frays and ends of skeins were all woven in so they can't be seen. I am happy with the results. This is my first long-sleeved garment.

hMMMM!

I'm beginning to think I don't belong on this site with all the designers, spinners, and guy who have access to great yarns. I work with yarn from Wal-Mart and Jo-Annes. Free patterns from the internet are my muse. I have no one to knit for, and no one to knit with. you all are so lucky.

Yarn Meters

Happy New Year everyone!

Quick question for the MWK crew - which yarn meter have you found success with? There are oodles to chose from and each have reviews ranging from amazing to craptacular; so I am at a loss - but have LOTS of yarn I need to know the amount of before I begin a project and run out....again! Thanks all!
