Ta-da! It’s a Sweater!

Yes, there were problems. The seams are a bit lumpy but next time I’ll try selvages. Except for the one that’s already on the needles for my younger grandson, I will not be making sweaters where I have to change gauge and alter every number by multiplying by a ratio. It was just too much to worry about in addition to it being my first sweater in pieces and my first shot at intarsia. But I did it. It’s a Stegosaurus. I always referred to it as the “dragon” because I felt I was battling it constantly. Now that I’ve tamed him, I think he’s kind of cute.
