papaya's sweater

this is papaya's Christmas sweater
even though it wasn't ready for Christmas or even in our house
i had a little bit of difficulty finishing it off
this is an ella rae pattern and i used kathmandu aran yarn
i was happy with both until i needed to finish it
the pattern instructed to have a moss stitch border
which i made and re-made three times
once on the sweater it made the final project bulky and it wouldn't lay flat
i was really frustrated given the self-imposed time crunch
however, oma came to the rescue
i mailed the sweater to a big prairie city
once the border was pulled off, she used her crochet skills to give it a nice unbulky finished edge
thanks oma!
here is oma's finishing touches
