My most recent FO, is the Climbing Vines Pullover from Interweave Knits Winter 2008.  I made it for my mommy, for her 75th birthday.  (I should really get a picture of her in it)  Ta Da!



I modifed the pattern a bit.  I made it a V-neck as she prefers v-necks.  I made the sleeves full length, and re-worked them to be bigger in the upper arm (the pattern had SUCH stupidly skinny arms!)  I also added body shaping.  My yarn wasn't the right gauge, so I re-did all the math.  I had to fudge the cap-like sleeves as I don't understand the math for those, but I think they worked out just fine. Basically I kept the vine and did my own thing.



I'm very very proud of the final result.  She even wore it on her birthday when we (3 generations of family leaving near) took her out to dinner at her favourite restaurant. Cheesy
