HAPPY ENDING: The Top Down Sweater Is Finished!

I am so excited that I am actually jumping up and down here in central NJ.
See that sweater? That is my FINISHED top-down. Actally, it's Goldisox's finished top-down sweater. I managed to pry it off him for this occasion and posed it on a dressmaker's dummy that had been suitably padded to hide her curvaceous torso.
I knitted the last stich and wove the last errant thread on Valentine's Day which made it all the sweeter.
Am I proud of myself? Are you kidding? You're talking to the woman who had trouble with a washcloth!
I am delighted, over the moon, ridiculously excited, and inordinately proud every time I see Goldisox put it on. I always wondered if I was a process or a product kind of girl. Well, I found out. Knitting this was great fun but it was nothing compared to the thrill of seeing someone I love actually wear it.

Beautifully done, Barbara. Now you'll never want to knit sweaters any other way. I even make top-down cardigans!

Tell Goldisox he owes you one. Or ten. LOL!

It is beautiful. I wish my husband would wear knitted goods. I am so envious of you who have a hubby who will. My kids will, but I would really like to knit for him. It turned out lovely, congrats!
