I soaked, rinsed and blocked the whole sweater last night and I will hand it over the young recipient once it is dried. I added an extra 2" to the length of the body and it made all the difference. My fellow knitter's grandaughter was good enough to try it on to check the fit last night and it is perfect!

Last Minute Striped sweater
That was a quick knit.
This is the Last Minute Striped Sweater by Amy King that I got from Knit Picks back over a year ago. The yarn is Simply Stripes in Crayon, which is no longer sold through Knit Picks. A self striping sock yarn will work just fine for this pattern. I started knitting the body on Tuesday 7-17 and finished the seaming and sewing on buttons last night at knitting, 7-26. I did not spend the entire week knitting the sweater as time was taken to read the final HP book, clean the house, do laundry, and spending time with my new loom.
