Well, I know it is still far from finished (no sleeves) and still farther from being at your doorstep so that you can actually wear it, but I am glad to say that I finished the hood in time for your birthday.
(Ok, so it still needs to be blocked and there a couple of loose ends to wrap up but basically it is done.)
I wish you a wonderful day and a fabulous year! I’ll be celebrating today by casting on sleeves and thinking of you.
PS: Hope you don’t mind my modeling the sweater, its just hard to photograph the full effect of the cables on the hood lying flat.
