Well, I was three days over my birthday goal date but I finished.
I used Eden bamboo yarn. It's very, very soft but it split like crazy and I find that even after blocking the stitches look a bit uneven. I had to add sixteen rows and stretch it out to block it but I've had to do that with every sweater I've made. I'm not pleased with how the neck line doesn't lay flat but oh well. I will definitely wear it!
