I can't believe I haven't posted this yet
I made this last year!:
Up close and personal:
I used my crappy cell phone to take these pictures. The colors really are these:
I wanted to get as close as I could to the colors of the one in the book. I don't own anything in these colors so it was a nice change. It's made with Caron Simply Soft in size Medium. It's super soft and it only cost me 6 bucks to make! I haven't had the chance to wear it much outdoors (southeast Texas mind you), but I wear it all the time indoors because I married a polar bear.
I even have another UTH WIP in green shades:
I'm making this one a size larger to be more comfy and a little frumpy for my days when I feel lazy (or lousy).
I even had enough yarn left over to make a handbag (crochet) from the Happy Hooker!http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=176129.0
Is it illegal to wear knit and carry crochet? *lol*
