i'm finally getting around to posting the picture of my cupcake. comments are appreciated as always. it looks a bit uneven on the picture but that's just cause i got a bad posture.

so here goes....

That is lovely! It is very similar to a brown one I have from Old Navy, but I would much rather have a homemade one. Wear it proudly...it looks great on you!

Nice Job!  What yarn did you use?  Also, what hook size?  Thanks for sharing:)

thanks for the nice comments. i'm glad you like it.

i used a cheap acrylic yarn that i had for about 10 years. it's not very nice, but i didn't want to waste expensive wool in case my first garment wasn't going to work out.

i used a size 5mm hook

Great job!  I started this project and put it down for awhile.  I really should finish it.  Seeing how great yours looks has gotten me all excited about it again!

Nice job on that!  Another HH pattern I've yet to conquer.  Really looks good on you, the fit around the torso is perfect.
