It's finished!

This was a challenge but the finished product was worth it. I did have to ravel back several times to fix errors but that's what happens when you're not paying attention. The JaggerSpun, Heathers was a dream to work with and wet finished with a really soft hand. It took almost two cones of Heathers 3/8 (which translates to sport weight) for a size 42 which would be about 2600 yards of yarn. Knitting with cones was a pleasure and eliminated ends that needed to be worked in. All I need to do now is add my label and an abalone shell tab and I'm set to give this as a gift. Whew!

My journey is summed up on our Ravelry page: John's Sweater.

If you'd like to try this, stop by the store and talk.
