Happy Mother’s Day

time for the close up

A long time ago, okay really not that long ago, I began a sweater.  It was about the same time I started the shawl, I hoped to finish before school started.  Well that project has remained stalled as you can see from the countdown to the right.  And so did the sweater, until February when I started knitting again.  And I knit and knit and knit.  I took it to meetings and softball games and even to dinner, although I never actually knit at dinner.  And finally I finished it.  Just in time for Mother’s Day!  Which is important because it was for my mom.  She picked the pattern, the color, the yarn and then I did the labor of love.  Here’s the result:
