Red Sweater Finished

Here's my wool sweater for a4A finished at last! I used the Touch of Style pattern that was posted on the web site. I read somewhere that the pattern was a little short, so I added 2 inches to the bottom as suggested. It's modeled by my 11 year old neighbor, and her 11 year old friend. Lindsay is small for her age, because she has been fighting leukemia for the past few years. The sweater is too big for her, maybe a little too small for Christine, who is as tall as her 13 year-old brother, so I'm guessing around a ten-year old would be about right. This will be mailed out on Monday. I owe a BIG thanks to LongmontKathy for trading me the last 2 skeins I needed to finish this project. I thought I had 6 skeins of Lion Brand wool scarlet yarn, but when I took a closer look, 2 of them were dark pink. Need to get my eyes checked I guess! I think the length came out long enough. What do you think? Shirley

What great young models rocking this lovely sweater! I think it's perfect for this drive, and will keep those two extra inches in mind if I use this pattern.
I'm pleased that my red yarn was a part of it, Shirley! I got the varigated yarn in trade.

Glad you like how I put your red yarn to work!
Can't wait to see what you make with the varigated yarn.
