Long Overdue

Long overdue for a little show and tell...

I'm wearing my very first hand knit sweater today.  It's actually the second day I've worn it.

I didn't do an excellent job of blocking it, so it needs to be redone, but for now, it's just fine!

For anyone interested, I knit it out of Alafosslopi (3.1 skeins) on US 10.5 needles and I modified the pattern to include sleeves.  It's Shalom on Ravelry.  The button is from a woodworker on Vancouver Island.

Gorgeous! That button is the perfect closure for it!
