I echo someone else's sentiment that the sweater looks well-made and not blatantly like a recon.  It's is so adorable & innovative!  I'm going to have to try this.

I think it's a good look and it looks good on you. It looks like you always intended it to look like that.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Cute!

Looks like something you would find in an over-priced, 'unique, artsy' boutique.

Project Vox -  What will you say?

I, Shout, along with fellow artist, Howl, make 5x4" cardstock booklets with our artwork on them, and leave them in random places for people to find.  The goal: to inspire and provoke thought

Have you seen any of our cards?

SUPER CUTE!
I'm now kicking myself for not snagging an argyle wool sweater I spotted at Goodwill a few days ago - it was too short in the sleeves but I luuuurved it!
Reminds me of a knitting pattern by Glampyre (anyone familiar with her stuff?). Similar style, anyways!
Wear it with pride! It was an excellent idea!

That really is very cute, and doesn't look like a recon at all.
What do you mean when you say you felted it in the washing machine? How is this done?
