Here's my last-gasp-of-winter sweater

It used about 3.5 hanks of Manos %100 wool.  I fell in love with the colour, and couldn't help myself!
I'm not sure if it looks better with a lighter-coloured shirt beneath (emphasizing the cropped-ness of the top), or with a darker one.

If I do another version (which is likely) I think I'd do it in a lighter-weight yarn, and probably with a different, deeper and more intricate fair isle around the top.

more details on my blog, here:

Cute---I like it both ways!

Oh, it's just kittens.

I want to leave this world the way I came into it:  naked, screaming, and covered in someone else's blood.

I like it! The fair isle on the top looks pretty unique.

I love it! It looks really good on you!

Then we should feed our jewelry to the sea
For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

Ahhh! I heart you and your new pretty sweater. My jealousy of you and your ability to knit amazing sweaters knows no bounds.  Grin

P.S    I love the white shirt underneath to show off the cropp-ed-ness  Wink

I blame it on the bunny....
