Hey Santa, I wanted a Sweater for Christmas too!!

Since I didn't receive one, I guess that's my signal to get sewing the sweater I started well over a year ago. Nearly 2 years ago, I was gifted several balls of Patons Decor in Aubergine for my birthday from my MIL Rhonda and I had started a sweater with that but I frogged it and the yarn sat for a while until I found the Tilted Duster from Interweave Knits Fall 2007 issue. So yesterday I got it out of hiding and started sewing. I've been loathing, no maybe fearing the sewing because I never like how it turns out because I am a poor seamstress. actually turned out not to bad. So now it is finally finished, all I need to do is find some buttons for it (I want to find pewter coloured ones) and ofcourse I'm going to wash it and block it a bit. :-) Once I find the buttons I like, I will post it up again. I'm really looking forward to wearing it soon!
