Ok, that might be an overly dramatic title. I was given a commission to finish a sweater vest for a lady: He neighbor had started it and made it about 2/3 of the way up the front and back, and then "became late" as they say in "The No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency" books. Anyhoo, client asked that I finish it for her so she could give it to the daughter (Her's or her late neighbor's...I never was never clear).
I finished it mere minutes ago, including some surruptuous repairs of a couple of the more glaring errors of the late lady's work. It hasn't been blocked yet, but here's what it looks like. (Lovely purple heather merino wool: Cascade 220 heathers~ col #2450 if you're curious). There is something especially joyous about completing work for someone who's passed on: It's as if I was saying, "Look, death didn't REALLY stop you!"
I'm happy with it. The photo doesn't thankfully show the apparent differences in our knitting...suffice it to say, I have a bit more experience and the top of the sweater is a bit more even and mistake free than the bottom. I'm sure the client will be delighted.
