>Update: Near completion / Sweater

>I worked on this a better part of the day while  at two soccer games and while I was teaching my mother-in-law some techniques in crochet.  When she figured out the techniques or was doing the round or frogging I would work on this.  It was nice I usually have to work on projects alone.  It was special to me to be able to sit and visit with her.

The sweater is very well written and is the correct measurements everywhere.  It is supposed to have two button hole but I liked four better.  So I made it with two to test the pattern then frogged one button band  and redid it with four buttons.  I did not have the forethought to take a picture of it with the two button holes.  So when I was sewing in the buttons I took a photo of it with just the two so people could see what it should look like.

I also have completed one sleeve which means I have tested all the parts of the sweater and it is an easy knit and works up fast with cute results.  It is supposed to be a boys sweater but I only have girls so my mannequin is dressed in girls clothes.  Also this is a size 3T pattern and my mannequin is a 2t that is why it looks a little big on it.
