It’s finished! I’m so pleased to have this sweater finished and in my wardrobe. Our Irish summer this year is starting off on the cool side so this is a very useful addition to my early summer wardrobe (who as I kidding…I’ll be wearing it all summer!)

As my gauge grew after my initial swatch I had a sweater that has a 50″ bust diameter when I finished. I kept working as I was ok with having a big swingy top. For the style I was going for extra width wasn’t a problem. I did however add a lot of extra decreases in for the sleeve so they fit correctly.

I want to thank my youngest, Lucas, for the photo shoot. He’s been a huge help to me this summer with both video and photography (and shortly with packing up my clubs!). Normally he’s at the gym 20-25 hours a week even during the school term so it works out well for both of us to have him involved with my business for the summer.

I’ll leave you now with a photo montage that is as much about my dog, Lizzie, as the sweater. She really does like to photo bomb!
