I’m Just a Tease!

So, I am currently wrapping up DAY 69 of the sweater project.  I’m actually quite surprised that I am only 2 months into it.  The hurdles I am in the process of jumping are the ones that really slow knitters down – grafting and weaving in the ends.  That is – the finishing process.
