OK, so I finished it! but will not be using it EVER! tons of mistakes and questionable knitting all the way through the project. I wanted to post a picture of it ( for evidence ) before I take it apart and use the yarn for something else! I will say that I learned a lot along the way, buttonholes for one! oh and how to stitch together shoulder seams. I think next time I try something like this I will need to get more help along the way.
Thanks for letting me share
