While this will be a late gift for Mom, it is done! This is the quickest sweater I have made besides a baby one! Love the way it turned out! And have now cast on one for me with a different yarn. But I must say that I love the airiness (is that a word?) Moms. I made it with Tahki "Jeans" yarn.
She can wear it and know it is a hug from me every time she does!
Happy Stamping & Knitting!
