Mermaid is FINISHED!!!!

I finished my Mermaid a few days ago but ran out of the slate gray for the i-cord on the sleeves. The sweater is being finished by an expert because I am not great at seaming garter stitch and wanted the finished product to look perfect. MY LYS, Sit-N-Knit in West Hartford, CT has ordered the yarn I need to finish the i-cord but I am so anxious to wear it I may use the light gray so I can get some use out of it before the weather turns too warm. A huge thank you goes to Amy, I wouldn't have been able to finish it without your wonderful spreadsheet!

I am also thinking about making another Hanne probably the Pagode in Cerise/poppy #7. No one seems to have that version in stock. I figure if I get right to it I'll be finished by fall.

Congratulations Holly! Try Cucumber Patch, she was happy to order any colorway she didn't have in stock and it was rather a quick ship considering they are across the "big pond". My local shop (Westport, CT) carries several of the kits and colorways. I too am in CT and I'll be watching for HF sweaters this spring and fall.
