Two years and one month, more or less

This sweater began two years ago on Dec. 25th, 2007, when I got purple roving for a Christmas present. (Picked out by me, but given by DH). It's been 2 years, one month, and 5 days, but now I present to you:

My Cobblestone pullover!

It's been washed and blocked (with built-in shoulders that are not where mine are as you can see from the below pic). Ready to wear on the first cold day.

Wait, that's today! 10 inches of snow fell yesterday and here we are again.

Cobblestone pullover by Jared Flood
Size 10.5 needles
yarn spun by me
two pounds purple roving from the Copper Moose.
1 pound red from The Sheep Shed Studio.
Big change in gauge so big changes in st counts. Idea of pattern was still followed (I think).
Plied with 1 strand red and 1 strand purple. Ran out of red so made a solid purple yoke with a blended edging.

Whee! It's done!

Very nice. It looks warm and great on you.

Congrats on getting it finished. Once those projects start sitting around it's so easy to just let them sit.
