FO Friday: Vivian Revealed

My second sweater of all time: Vivain! She's knit up using seven skeins of Wool of the Andes Bulky.  Took me about 3 months for the actual sweater and at least a month to get the courage to sew in the zipper. I'm definitely enjoying this one as much as I can with what little of winter I have left.






Today is also the last day to enter my giveaway to win a set of stitch markers, so make sure to enter! For more beautiful finished objects, make sure to check out Tamis Amis.
