This Rose Finally Blooms

The seemingly simple sweater that took two years,  Pullovers are tough, aren't they?  Stocking stitch around and around.  Gets rather dull.  Combine that with a mathematically challenged pattern and awkward construction techniques and the result is this lovely Americo cotton project spending months in a bag under the bedroom chair. It was this close to being complete about 6 months ago when there was a seaming mishap that could only be fixed by ripping and a bit of cutting.  Frustration ensued.  Back in the bag.  
Well, this morning I finally pulled it out, seamed as best I could and wove in all the ends.  It doesn't suck.  There's still some funky stuff going on under the arm but it will do.  Deets on Ravelry.
I do like this weirdly blurry photo.  I'm not sure why it turned out like this.  A happy accident.
