Hand knitted sweater

Well my TWO YEAR project is finally done...
Its an all scrap yarn sweater for me, yes, all scraps, just take a couple yards of each color and weights and tie them together and make balls of yarn. I love the look.

One problem,,all the different weights made the pattern way off and had to cut it all and prepare the sweater same way you would put a jacket together. My dear friend Marsha helped me out at first, then she left town for awhile, and then this lovely lady at Cupper's coffeehouse where we met each Monday helped me put it all together.

And again, thank you so much Marcia and Kathy. Now I'm more comfortable with cutting my sweater when needed! A scary thing for sure...ugh!

I might make one for my g/daughter someday, maybe! Right now I"m knitted out!
Although I am making four knitted hats for Cancer patients. I want to get those done next as I promised I would do them.

I have a fall sweater that Kathy is sewing together right now and its about the same style as this blue one, maybe a little different in style though, but in fall colors. That will be posted very soon.

Hope you like it and it was sooooooooooo fun to make, I loved the process.

Happy knitting to all my knitting friends.

i really like the blue scrappy one, all those bits of blues go so well together. But you're not "waving" in your "Waving from Arizona" pic. hugs, KaiteM.
