Finished Object! Raglan Sweater

Wo hoo!  I finally finished to Top Down Raglan Sweater pattern from Knitting for Dummies.  I’m actually surprised as to how good it came out, considering you need to knit a swatch for it.  (Yeah, really!)

I’m really proud of it.  My husband said it’s the most professional looking garment I’ve knit to date.  That’s means a lot to hear that!  Thanks, honey!  I’m wearing it at work today, and have gotten a few compliments on it.

This took longer than expected to knit because I had stitches in my right arm, and as the sweater would twist up from knitting the sleeves, I had to keep lifting and unwinding the sweater.  This was putting pressure on my arm and pulled at my stitches, so I had to stop.

Well, last Tuesday, the stitches came out, and started finishing the sweater on Friday.  I was done with what was left of the first sleeve, completed the second sleeve (which went much faster than the first), and weaved in all my ends by Sunday afternoon.  Boom!

If you want to see the details about the sweater, I recommend popping over to its project page on Ravelry.

Otherwise, if you want to catch up on the saga of this sweater, read the post about it here.

Yes!  I’m done!  What have you finished lately in your crafty endeavors that you are proud of?
