So my MIL got me five skeins of Yarn Bee's Icelandic Jewels in marbled onyx. It's black fuzzy yarn with this shiny variegated ribbon running through it, very pretty. I was getting pretty tired of working single crochet on this pair of gloves I'm making for my father (with sock yarn and a size one hook Tongue) So I decided to make something out of my new yarn. I was surprised how fast it went, probably because I was used to using that teeny hook, hehe. Started it one evening, and finished the next. I'm pretty proud of it, it's the first wearable that I've made besides hats and scarves. Speaking of which, I have one skein left, so I think I'll make a matching hat! Sorry for all the chit-chat, on with the pics!

Gorgeous!  It looks great on you!  Did you make your own pattern for it?

I love the shaping of this sweater. It's so nice! I'd love to know where the pattern came from or if you just came up with it yourself? It's lovely!

Thanks for all the sweet comments! I didn't use a pattern, just sort of made it up as I went along. I found a few stitch patterns that I liked then worked it from the edge of one sleeve to the next, adding the under bust part on afterwards. I wasn't too sure on whether I should add the length on or just leave it as a short shrug, but I like it as is.
