FO--a long time coming

Finally finished the sweater. I blocked it last night, and it was (mostly) dry today. Dry enough to take some pictures at least. Here it is:

38 inch chest
s: US 4 / 3.5 mm US 2½ / 3.0 mm
: Harrisville Designs New England Shetland

Six months in the making, but finished before the snow. I have not added closures. I may leave it this way. We'll see how things work out when I start wearing it.

Perfect time to finish. I'm sure you will wear it alot this fall and it should keep you stylishly warm.
