Heart Flower Sweater is Done!

I finished K's Heart Flower sweater in the wee hours of this morning. I am so happy to have finished. I started this sweater almost a year ago! It was fun to knit even though I took a nice long break in the middle of it. Here are two pictures of K modeling it. She was annoyed that I took her away from play time on such a beautiful spring day so she doesn't look very happy but she wore the sweater all afternoon in spite of the warm weather.

As always click on the images for a closer view:

The only changes I made to the original plan were that I used a picot hem instead of knitting a scalloped border and I used the same picot hem for the button band instead of a ribbed band. I also added the picot hem to the sleeves.
