Inishmore Finale

Ok, Ok, I know you’re all tired of hearing about it by now, but I’m still thrilled to death with this sweater.  Especially as a friend who has been knitting for longer than I’ve been alive looked at it and declared it one seriously fabulous sweater.  She even thought the seams look good and didn’t find any of the many mistakes.  Then she was kind enough to come into an empty office with me to take pictures of it while I was in it.  I fell in love with it all over again.  I hate pictures of myself.  Cameras automatically go to the ugly setting when I get in front of them.  It doesn’t matter how good I look in front of the mirror, take a picture and I looked washed out and bald.  However even I have to admit that I look good in this sweater, even in the pictures.  Admittedly she cut off my head in all of them because I wanted the sweater and not my face, but they still look good.  Or maybe that’s why they look good.

OK, enough self-congratulations.  Here it is!


I will eventually get some more pictures hanging and folded for my Ravelry page (ones with better stitch definition and lighting, but I won’t subject you to them here. 

Now, what to knit next…

Oh yeah, Aunt wants one of the same…
