Finally Finis!

Finally, finally, after four years, and knitting Katie's lace sweater nearly two complete times; it is finished. I worked on it every day of this past week, my Spring Break. Sometimes for as much as 12 hours in a day. I broke one of my fabulous Harmony knitting needles under the sheer strain of the 550+ stitches in the border ribbing. Since I started the sweater for the second time back in June of 2008, Katie has converted to vegetarianism and lost about 45 pounds. Consequently, the sweater is big for ner now, but she says it is "comfy." I hope she will wear it and enjoy it. For my part, I am very, very glad it is done! Love you, Katie!
