My godfather's sweater was looming large over me - his daughter called and invited me to his 80th birthday celebration. I had 3 weeks to crank out most of the sleeves, seam it and knit up a turtleneck. The pressure was great and most of it was self-induced. It was my own fault I let this languish for so long (started on July 30th).
I am happy to report I did it! What a weight off my shoulders. Here are some blurry photos - one of my DH modeling it and then of the presentation of the sweater at the birthday party.
