Ravellinics Sweater Is Done

I finished it this morning. I am still weaving in ends, though. But it's technically done, right?  It's the T-Top Sweater from the Knit for Kids site.  I originally was going to try the Cuff-to-Cuff sweater, but I got too confused right away. Since it's been so long since I have knitted anything, I decided to try something easy. And I almost forgot how to cast on at the beginning of a row (for the sleeves).  Other than that, it was straight stockinette or garter stitch.  I also cast on for a size two (the smallest size), because I wanted to make sure I had enough yarn.  Using size 9 needles, I was right on with my gauge; but it still came out to size four measurements. Go figure. Probably just me.  Anyway, I am sending this to the Eastern European and Russian Orphange Project.  (Made the deadline by one day for the Ravellinics thing, too.) 

P.S. Not only did I have enough to finish the sweater, but I have almost a whole skein left. Thank you, Mimi; for offering to send me yours, though.   :)

That turned out cute, Tina, so nice to know a girl somewhere will enjoy wearing it and be kept warm ;)
You make it seem so easy to knit up. And it takes much less yarn too compared with crochet :)
