FO – Love Sweater

After a slight delay caused by very long extremities the Love Sweater is complete. This quick knit took a total of 6 days to knit. At 3.5 sts to the inch and 3 rows to the inch I am sure it is easy to understand why. The boy picked out the sweater on one of our trips to Barnes and Noble and the yarn at MDS&W ’08. I wasn’t sure how the yarn would knit up at first but I rather like the fabric it turned out. I think I am also becoming a Rowan convert. Once I had bound off the sweater, I handed it over and we promptly broke up keeping with knitterly sweater traditions. 😉
