Drifting into First Place!

 The sweater is finished! 
 It is wonderful, fits perfectly and I'm thrilled!
 It's been a long time since I can say I have had such a sweater success!
 It is comfortable unbuttoned which will be the way I wear it most often!
But when I need to, I can button it up for additional warmth and style!
The yarn is soft but still has enough wooly memory and character.
I am on a sweater high!

STATS:
Pattern is Drift by Emily Nora O'Neil  (Nora Gaughan)
Yarn is KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Superwash, Pampas Heather, Worsted Weight--12 skeins
Needles - #5 and#7  (I used the new Foursquare circulars from KnitPicks)
6 wooden buttons 5/8"

  5. That is just GORGEOUS! It looks like a wardrobe staple. Excellent work. I have to admit that whether it has buttons or not, I usually wear my cardigans open. Comfy!!!

KNITTING

The first Helical striped sock is finished--the yarn is from Webs, their Valley Yarns Huntington in Arctic and Chocolate colors.  Perfection...
