It's done. It's finally done. Okay, it's not exactly done since I still must purchase and attach a button to the neck, but technically, the knitting part of it is over, so humor me while I do a little happy dance. Done, done, done.
I chased my nephew around the house last week when they came down for dinner just to make sure it wasn't going to be too small, because that would have been just my luck. He's going to be three this January so it's not like he's really going to care one bit about how disgustingly proud I am to have made this for him (and in fact if he's anything like his older brother, he will open the package, look at the sweater, and then promptly discard is as 'boring'), but that really isn't important. What's important is that it's done, and with plenty of time to spare.
Oh, and yes, it *is* lying on the floor in this picture. I needed a flat surface that was light colored for the photo. Tangerine (the orange nose), Rosemary (the black nose), and Azzie were all being *so* helpful in the process.
