What are you most proud of? I'm so proud of the fact that I actually got it to fit fairly well. And, I guess I love that the Icelandic pattern looks so good.

A very nice sweater. And how rewarding, that your son liked your sweater and mentioned it on his facebook. That means a lot!

Thank you for sharing. Seems like this project and this class aided you in adding to your knitting skills. I really like how you used this class and Amy's teaching as a step ladder for your own decided destination. Very creative of you and Amy and Craftsy should be proud in how you used their provided tool. So i am amazed at your completed sweater, your design elements and implementation, and your use of the information in the class. Excellent and Awesome!

Sa-weet! Nice photo too with the background color. None too shabby in the handsome son department either.
