I can't believe it...

But the knitting is finished on my Fireside (first blogged here, then again here; Ravelry pattern page here)! This has been over a year and a half in the making. It feels weird that it's done. I did the finishing as I went, so all that's left is to sew in the sleeves and sew on the buttons (I blocked the sleeves last week, but the rest of it has been sitting in vest form for quite a while).

I haven't fully appreciated the occasion yet. I am a little dazed. :) I took a detail picture of the sleeves the day I finished to commemorate the big day, but I can't wait until I can try the whole thing on!


  1. Congratulations! It looks beautiful...I'm sure once you try it on, the monumentousness of it will hit you :)

  2. I can't wait to see the full thing. I LOVE the pattern, just added it to my queue.

    WOO! Congratulations. :)

  3. WOW, Congrats friend!!!! I remember the day you told me you were going to make that beautiful sweater!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Can't wait to see it on you!

  4. That is so white and fluffy -- perfect for December. Can't wait to see the finished sweater!

  5. Hi Amy,
    Thanks for following our blog, we're so pleased to have you! I look forward to seeing the finished sweater- it looks like a real labour of love....
