(spinning with joy)
I'm really pleased with how this turned out, it's even better than I hoped it would be! I don't think I'll be unraveling it and turning it into a blanket, as I had threatened to do earlier. This is quite a victory for me, since this is the third pattern I have tried to make this crazy yarn work with.
And the sweater has already passed its first and most difficult test. As soon as I finished it yesterday, I wore it out in public, without a moment of hesitation. Jimmy and I had to go visit two of the nine circles of Hell - Target and Home Depot.
