The end (hopefully) of a 6-year journey:
To recap very quickly: Marty and me, dating. Adopted a dog. Second day, the dog ate Marty's sweater. Sweater was one of the only 2 sweaters he had. The knitter girlfriend promises a sweater. Girlfriend becomes wife. Finally at 4-year anniversary, she casts on the sweater. Finishes the sweater in December 2014. Sleeves don't fit right. Baby born. Sleeves refinished now in November 2015.
The said dog who ate Marty's Sweater in this picture:
he has been very good to our sweaters since then so I hope no more unfortunate incidents. :)
otherwise, Marty will have to wait another 5 years for a new sweater.
