It Fit!

I got a call from my mom yesterday and it only took 2 days for her sweater to get from Connecticut to Florida. She said it fit perfectly - the length was perfect too! My dad who gets a bit bossy when it comes to opening packages was the one who opened up the sweater and his first comment was on how wonderful the color is. I told my mom that every time I was working on it in the presence of anyone they would always admire the color...it is a winner.

I put a tag on it that I got from Knitterella. In the "made by" section I wrote: Estella. In the "for" section I wrote: her wonderful mother. My mom was so cute when she said that a friend saw the tag and said she should keep it on the sweater - like Minnie Pearl.

No pictures yet as it was a warm day in Florida and she was wearing shorts and a t-shirt. She might get one today or tomorrow and I promise to post it.

Lots of knitting this weekend - track meet and the Giants game. GO GIANTS!

Woohoo! I'm so happy it fit. Can't wait to see a picture. I also vote for wearing the tag a la Minnie Pearl.
