I started this before Thanksgiving but got sidetracked by Christmas etc...finished it over the weekend. I used Lion Brand wool-ease. I did the sleeves & back first, and by that time wanted to change the skull because I wasn't too crazy about the one in the book. I'm not terribly fond of white yarn, either, so, cranberry it is! The sleeves seemed way too short so I added a few more inches.

lumpy-


and in action-


I'm really happy with it, I think wanting to make this sweater was quite possibly the only reason I started to crochet (but of course now I'm a freaking addict). It was pretty easy and I loooove the way it fits, it's nice and long and cozy. The worst part (not hard, just irritating) is sewing the stupid thing together  Wink
