This is the sweater on the cover of Crochet! Magazine (Jan. 2009). It worked up quickly and fits well. Caron SS. Do you like it?

Gorgeous! The yarn is so rich and luxurious looking. I was happy when I saw it's Caron SS because I can afford that! Smiley Great work! Fit's beautifully!

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.

Awesome job! I love it. It sort of reminds me of a top I want from the Pyramid Collection magazine.

That is just beautiful.  I may be inspired to learn to crochet properly (follow a pattern for something besides a scarf).

Wow, that's really pretty. The color looks great on you.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

It looks fabulous! You should make a little sweater for your doggie with the same yarn and then it would be cuteness overload! LoL!

I am almost done with this sweater; mine is black. I had a little trouble understanding the front side when I got to the neckline/armholes/shoulders, I didn't like how it wanted you to switch back and forth in the instructions. It turned out okay, though. Glad to see someone else made sense of it! Hopefully when it's all put together it's as pretty as yours!

I will get a piture for you as soon as I can. The back looks just like the front without the lower neckline.

I am so glad you made this, because I've been thinking about it!  It came out really well.  Did you have any trouble with the pattern? 

I'm glad you used Caron Simply Soft too.  I want to do something in their light green, and I think this would look great.

Not really. It seems like it was pretty easy to understand.
