Well I finally finished the sweater I made for my sister for Christmas. I made up the pattern so i hope it fits. I started it September 1st and finished the knitting around the end of October. It has been sitting around waiting for the zipper and the lining which i just finished.

Thanks everyone. I love this

Thanks everyone. I love this site cause you can put your finished pieces up and get some of the praise that you want after a touch piece. I made a few mistakes with the lining. I am going to cut it out and redo it if I find some more silk. I had never sewn with silk but know a lot more now. When i sized the piece i didn't leave enough to really stretch with the sweater. I feel like it wouldn't be right not to have the lining perfect after working so hard on the sweater. If i don't find the silk she will get it unlined and i am sure she will love it either way.
Again thanks for all the comments

All I can say is - WOW

OHMAGOSH! Really a gorgeous piece of knitting. The yarn works so well with the richness of the pattern. You should be proud and your sister will be thrilled, I'm sure.
