This is definitely the fun part. Knitting done, finishing commenced.
I have sewn up the side seams and did a quick try on before picking up stitches around the opening so I can knit the body of the sweater.
Sadly, the sizing appears to be just perfect for my Mom. I had been secretly harboring hopes it would be too big for her and I would have to gracefully step in to spare her from the horror of it, but, sadly, no. It should be just right for her.
Next to pick up a bunch of stitches and knit some ribbing. I'm hoping to finish it in time for her to wear for her grandson's graduation.
