Using a Berroco pattern and the glace rayon yarn, I made this as my first pattern to follow. It came out HUGE, but them my mother saved the day and took it in for me. I started it around Memorial Day 2004 and finished it around Labor Day 2004.
When I met my friend Maureen S. on a BSSC trip to Nantucket she saw me knitting this sweater and showed my how to knit Irish style so I could go faster. Because of that I was able to get a bunch of knitting done in 2004.
