It's done! It's Done!

Fancy Malabrigo sweater for my Logan.

Again, the colorful buttons are from Amazon, and the sweater was done in the round entirely, and then steeked before adding the sleeves. It was SUCH a quick knit due to knitting in the round, and as usual, the steeking was exhilarating. I added garter button band because they're easy and stretchy, for quick dressing. 

So what was Logan's reaction? Was he grateful? Was he happy?

logan's reaction

I think he really was happy. He just really wanted to go out and show people his new sweater. Haha. We were on our way to the Santa Ana Patchwork Craft Fair  and I put this on him, stopped everything to take the pictures. He was NOT happy about my mini photography session but once I put him in the car, he promptly became himself again, mellow and happy, and then slept the entire time while we were at the show. I was happy too because it was kind of chilly and gloomy but I knew my guy was perfectly happy and warm in the sweater. :)
