All done!

Here's the sweater that I started earlier this summer.  It's made from undyed wool from a friend's sheep in a basket weave pattern on circular needles.  It's for the Best Beloved; I'm currently working on one in hand dyed, hand spun yarn for me.  It's been a while since I've actually FINISHED something, so I'm really quite pleased!  Most of this was worked watching reruns of Star Trek: The Next Generation - in case that's helpful information!!!

Basketweave pattern, worsted weight yarn, size 10 circular needles

Beautiful work and colour! 

Beautiful work and colour!  I know how much work a basketweave pattern is so I appreciate all the work in this jumper.  Didn't you tell me earlier that you did this in the round and seamless?

Thanks for the kind words,

Thanks for the kind words, everyone!  Yes, this is seamless, knit from the bottom up, then the sleeves are knit from the shoulders down.  I did join the shoulders at the top with a knit seam instead of weaving them together using the Kitchener stitch (?) as I usually do, so there are seams there.

So beautiful it makes me

So beautiful it makes me want to move back up North so that I could wear one of these.  Ok, . . . . ALMOST makes me want to move back . . . not quiteFoot in mouth
