...a finished sweater!
It took me just under a month to knit this cabled pullover for Liat. I got the pattern as a bonus inside the summer 2009 issue of Simply Knitting (a British magazine), which I bought at Borders.
The pattern was a disaster, full of mistakes and very unclear. If you are on Ravelry, you can find my detailed notes on the knitting of this sweater in my Projects (my name there is amysamin).
In spite of my frustration with the pattern, I love the finished product. I changed the pattern in a couple of ways, including using a thicker yarn (Cotton Ease) than called for, and making both the body and sleeves longer. Those belly-baring sweaters are SO last year, know what I mean?
Now, I wonder how far I can get on the next sweater Liat has requested before she leaves for Poland next month?

The sweater is gorgeous. Great job!!! Liat really is beautiful. She's matured so much since you and I first became blogging friends.
Looks beautiful! Congratulations!
I agree with Joansie. Liat has become a beautiful young woman. OH, and the sweater is absolutely gorgeous!
How fast they grow! Your beautiful daughter looks great in her beautiful sweater!! Good job on both. :)
Oh, that's gorgeous, and so is she! Congratulations!
What a beautiful women Liat is. I love the sweater color and it looks so good on her.
You are such a good knitter Amy.
What a beautiful sweater on a beautiful girl - and it speaks to your knitting prowess that you figured out a pattern full of mistakes. :)
You are so lucky to have her request sweaters from you...
