The sweater is finally done. I brought it to the Knit Nite last night (details to follow). I think I am most proud of the buttons my daughter helped pick out at Elfriede's. They are copper colored and have a dragon in the middle.
I am a firm believer in blocking and this one really pays off. I was a bit skeptical and worried that the Vine at the bottom would not look right. I even pulled my stitches real tight, but it still looked wavy. I panicked for a minute, but after I lightly wet blocked it, it stayed flat and nice .
