FO: Hild Spring Sweater

I have finally gotten around to blogging a little bit about the Hild sweater! Hurrah smile This was the sweater that I finished in a month, in just barely a month... the sweater that convinced me I would never want to join one of those Knit-Twelve-Sweaters-In-A-Year Knit-A-Longs... It was a good month, right?! It seemed long because I knit an entire sweater during the end of March and most of April, but it seemed short because I felt like I had to rush and rush because the days kept passing so quickly.

But Holly returned from Scotland and I finished my sweater the day before the party and I got to wear my sweater for all to see! The compliments felt nice, even if the pseudo-summer heat and silky wool did not... lol

So here we have it, the stats:
