Here's a couple of more pictures of DD#2's finished Hew sweater. I bleary-eyed took these pics at 6am right before she caught the school bus. She was way more awake than I was.

A ciyoke (Oops--one position over on the keyboard makes a funny looking word)
A couple of things that seemed to take forever:
The ties. They are cast on the long way, and somehow that seems to take so much longer than the short way.
The neckline is picked up at one tie and knit up and around until the other one. It makes a really pretty finish with no sewing, but again....it seems to take awhile. Maybe I was just being impatient.


Hew from canaryknits
Size 34
1.5 skeins of Red Heart Designer Sport, 3815 Dutch Blue
size 6 needles, I believe
No modifications

She loves it!

What a great looking project!!! It looks fantastic!

and I'm so sorry to hear abt your dog. It's always hard to lose a pet, but esp one that you've had for so long.

Looks like it was a hit with your girlie. Great color for her too.
