The I'm so glad it's done sweater!

Provence sweater:
Pattern: Knitter's spring 2005
Yarn: Classic elite Provence
Time from start to finish: 12 months plus

I'm finished my very first adult sweater! I made a final adjustment to the pattern while finishing it. The closure called for snap tape which I applied and then hated how it looked. So instead I crocheted a button hole on and sewed on a mother of pearl button and now I really like it.
It is a gift for Patti, one of the last time's I visited her she took me to the spa for a day so this was my way of thanking her. We went to a local LYS and she picked out the yarn and pattern. I hope she likes it and it fits her alright.
