Bless is finished

As promised, here's a picture of the finished Bless. This sweater received a lot of wear in Oregon. It is a comfy, comfy sweater. That said, I hate how stretchy the Rowan cork has turned out to be. The more you wear it, the more it stretches down. The other problem with this has been the zipper. Because the cork stretches, it sags in the middle--even after I added ribbon and reworked the zipper. But--still a sweater that will get lots of wear.

I sold quite a few of the items I took to our knitting guild craft sale and picked up a few items from other tables and still had a bit of cash left at the end.

The Green Mountain Spinnery book was from our local used book store, but all the rest were ones that people had for sale. I really like the patterns for Peer Gynt. These are all traditional scandinavian color work sweater, always fun!
