Sweater for Ash

Over 4 years ago I bought myself a bunch of forest green Cascade Eco with the intention of knitting my very first adult sized sweater. I knit the back of the sweater, but I put the project on hold to knit the Owls Sweater with our newly formed "knit night".

Since then I've knit and sewn and woven a few things, mostly gifts, but I still hadn't knit myself a sweater. I decided to pick up the green yarn and a new pattern and start a sweater for me. But as soon as I started knitting it, I knew it wasn't for me at all - it was for Ashley! Here are a few iPhone photos from last night:

I had to wear it at least once before giving it away though :) so I wore it to work earlier that day and sent Ash a selfie from the staff ladies room...

I'm already well into my next knitting project and can't wait to share the details!
