I sewed on the perfect big, wooden button a few minutes ago, and now I'm officially finished with my first (albeit child-size) sweater.
I first came across the Neighborly on Alicia Paulson's blog, Posie Gets Cozy. She posts about it here, along with the most adorable French dress. You should definitely go check out her blog. :)
So I followed the pattern around blogland, from Posie Gets Cozy, to its very own Ravelry pattern page (where it's available as a free download), to Jennifer Casa's blog. She writes a lovely post on being neighborly, and encourages those who use her pattern to make an additional sweater for charity. So now that I've finished one for the hope chest, I think I'll cast on another for charity. :)
