One year ago I started knitting my first sweater and one day ago I finally finished it.

I bought the yarn in New Hampshire at the best hippie fiber workshop in the world, Harrisville Designs. This place is legendary, they cover all types of fiber arts, spinning, dyeing, weaving, knitting etc. Harrisville is one of the most picturesque towns i've ever seen and I am so lucky our family's house is just a few miles away from this mecca.
I am waiting on a good final sweater photo, but this is the general idea. The pattern is a penny straker whom I love. I like thinking that generations of wives and mothers have tested her patterns out before me and there is nothing as sweet and genuine as knitting to connect you to the past.
