I made this sweater in record time using lovely natural yarn I had purchased last year in a large spool from A New Yarn, a non-profit yarn store in Seattle (regrettably no longer open). The pattern is from Hip Knits. I felt like I was practically finishing it on the way to the post office! Completing it stretched me, but I kept thinking that it would keep a young teenager warm this winter and that kept me going strong. I have been making things for afghans4Afghans for years, but this was my first sweater. I send heartfelt thanks to all of you in San Francisco who work so hard to make this possible.
