Finally Finished

I had been working on a sweater for Harvey for Christmas for over a month. I never did get it finished in time for Christmas Day, but I did finish it yesterday.

I loved the pattern and the yarn, it just took a bit longer than expected what with working full time, baking and keeping house.

He did love it when he found the sweater laying on the bed. He had to try it on right away.

Now that I know how long this pattern takes I am sure I would be more than willing to make one for Kurt and one for Kris. This sweater was made from Beehive Astra and they have lots of colours to choose from.

Off to visit you all.

Everyone have a wonderful day.

God bless.

Gray goes with just about anything so that is why I picked it for him. Also it seems to stay clean longer and for him that is a must.

God Bless.

It is beautiful. Knitting is not a craft/skill that I have ever gotten a chance to learn.
