The bane of my crochet existence for, well, okay, only a few days. But it'll probably be the only clothing pattern I design myself. I gave it as a Christmas gift for my cousin's baby, but she hasn't worn it yet and I have no idea if it will even fit her. I hope so, because if not then I killed my eyes and fingers for nothing, unraveling everything I could in order to make sure I had enough yarn--I just made it. I've never done so much frogging in my life (hence calling it the Penelope sweater), and with a really thin mohair-ish (technically 100% acryllic, but with the feel of mohair) yarn, it was kind of a nightmare. Other than that it was fairly simple, the pattern is on my blog (gundamgirlwing.blogspot.com) if anyone wants to attempt it and see it actually fits humans or is just destined for the toy chest.
I was really happy with the colors though--it was what I had on hand, but my cousin isn't really a big pink fan anyway.
