A Happy Ending

I delivered the Pen Pal sweater to ME today; she said she would meet me in town, but it is a pleasure to drive out to her historic farm. (Will rode out with me; his only comment as we drove up her lane was "Wow." It is beautiful, like something out of Country Living. What am I saying? It is the epitome of country living!)

She was pleased with the result:

I took a few pictures of the final steps:

I used some green yarn to mark the area to cut away. I ran a machine basting stitch along this line, and then zig-zagged (my serger isn't working too well, and I didn't want to risk messing up!)

Here is the shoulder area cut away, and after the seaming.
I feel more peaceful now that it is complete. Wishing you that same peace.

  1. Wow! You did a great job with the PenPal sweater. I would never have been so brave, but I am thrilled for you that it turned out so well!
