I didn't believe it would happen...but...

...Sapporo is FINISHED! (Yes, I'm shouting!)Greetings, and Dear Cynthia,

Here are some photos...This next one was taken outside of the coffee room which is now part of Lakeside Fibers. Have I taken you there since they added their big room in the back? Nice place to knit, do homework, have a steamer and cherry/almond cookie, and visit with friends....AND, they open really early, so I can go there right after I drop off my five year old at preschool... Photo taken by Caryn, who is in my chemistry class, and who is also a "cool" (okay, I'm dating myself) knitter! Yes, the finishing is finished. It is just the thing to wear tonight, when we go to a Lutefisk dinner. Warm regards,
Laura (YarnThrower)

Beautiful Sweater!
Wow. And i try really hard to finish a pair of matching socks.
That is just gorgeous.

Great job! It fits you perfectly and the weather is really cold enough to wear it a lot.

Sapporo looks great! Congratulations:-)
Lutefisk? I know how to make the stuff, and I know how to cook it so that it doesn't fall completely apart, but eat it?? Sorry, not me:-)

Hooray! It's beautiful! Super fun pictures, too.
Have some lefse for me.

You're right -- just in time for the chilly evenings and it looks great on you too! Congratulations!

WOW!!!!! What a sweater, and what nice finishing! A store bought sweater could not look any nicer. Very very very nice job. I can only aspire to one day make a sweater as HALF as nice as yours.

Sus said...

Yay!!! It looks super! Super Sapporo -- it should get its own cape! :)

I've said it before, but I am just crazy impressed. Someday I'll make a super easy sweater and then I'm sure I'll be even MORE impressed. Congratulations on a job very well done!

I've heard of that coffee room/yarn store before. Jealous. Muy jealous.

Oh my gosh, it's wonderful! It looks like one of those $800 sweaters you see at Nordstrom's. Except better, obviously. Your finishing is always so precise and professional looking.

"Wow!" is too calm a term to use for such a lovely sweater! Don't you just love the feeling of finishing something so intricate that turns out so beautifully?

Maybe some day I'll get to feel that way, too... (ha ha ha)

Oh, how beautiful! Was doing the zipper easy, hard, challenging, impossible? It looks professional. I'm still finishing a Dale for my husband from 3 christmases ago....

BEAUTIFUL! I'm so happy I discovered your blogsite since I love knitting Dale sweaters myself!
