All Done Aidez

Well, the day before Thanksgiving I finished seaming my Aidez and put it out to block. I then wore it Thanksgiving Day to my mother in laws - it was still a bit damp but I didn't care. I just had to wear it. I had my camera - did I pull it out and get some pictures? No. So, here are a few shots of it hanging out in my room.





I love how it seamed up at the sleeves and the neckband worked like a charm.
Now, all my family knows I knit. I love to wear what I make. I love to give my knitting as gifts. What I love most is when someone compliments what I have made. Not one peep from anyone except from my proud husband about this sweater. Must say it took the air out of my balloon. However, I won't let it bum me too much as I LOVE this sweater and I know I'm going to live in it.

I'm working on the same sweater now and your pics give me a boost! One thing that I can't understand, and maybe you can help....on the pattern, it says to extend the collar band to 3 3/4", but on the drawing measurements it says 4 3/4". Any suggestions based on what you did. Obviously it turned out well:)
