If all our life is but a dream, fantastic posing greed
Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

It looks great!

Where did you get the pattern, or is it your own?

thanks for the comments, my friends!

the yarn is actually some cheap red heart...i believe it was called "aran fleck". i know what you're thinking...itch central, right? well, i've heard that if you give red heart a little wash with some fabric softener it comes out quite comfortable. i'm willing to give it a try if it means saving big bucks in the long run! i'll let you know how it turns out.

i knit this as part of the top-down raglan-a-long. the pattern (and knitalong) can be found here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=152316.0

happy knitting!
