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.
