I can't believe I haven't posted this yet Grin 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!

Is it illegal to wear knit and carry crochet? *lol*

wow, that looks awesome! i've been thinking about making an UTH for awhile, but my "sweater budget" hasn't allowed me yet. i do like simply soft, though, and for $6 i might just have to go for it!

well done, your hoodies look really good!

I'm working on one of these at the moment, this is the first knitted jumper for me and loved the pattern so much i just had to have one so the methods are new, i keep making the picked up stitches wonky but i'm learning and getting through it and is quite fun. I hope mine turns out to look as good as yours.

Good work!  Smiley

oooh, I guess i forgot to mention that I made a few mistakes with this sweater. However, if you didn't know any better, you can't tell. I wish you much luck with yours. It actually is really easy. Post pics of it when you are done!
