Finally Done!

I don't even remember exactly when I started knitting this - it was the dead of winter for sure.
Then my back was giving me fits and I couldn't sit for very long to knit (it's all better now).
Then I was frozen in fear because of some mistakes.
To frog or not to frog?
I finally decided that if I wear it with a big smile, none of the mistakes will be noticed.
One of my grandmother's favorite sayings, "The prettiest thing you can wear is your smile."
Now I think I'll order more yarn to make another one.

Can we say "fabulous"?!?! What a fun summer top! I have a shrug on the needles just now-but you make me want to make something summery in cotton or linen! Great job, Kimster!

OH my GOSH! A hand knit sweater that actual fits the person it was made for! I don't think I've every seen such a thing - 'cept for maybe babies. NICE job, nice job. And the photo is WONDERFUL!

Good golly Miss Molly, you knit that Kimmie! It's gorgeous! You are a very good knitter and it fits beautifully too. I am more of a crochet gal, a little less thinking involved teehee! The color and fineness of this piece are just stunning...well done you!
