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.
