i named this sweater "the dream sweater" because it is made with very soft cashmere/merino blends and i've been conceptualizing it in my head for months. i used this sweater generator: http://prjonamunstur.is/#/Design i got the charts from this awesome baby sweater, which is my ultimate inspiration: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/the-bees-knees when i saw it i immediately started visualizing gold bees on an adult-sized sweater.







and here's the sweater on its own!



it took me about three weeks and i just got finished! it came at a perfect time because it just snowed a ton in georgia.

Wow, it turned out great! You did a great job designing that pattern. And it looks adorable on you.

If I had a little grandchild, I would need that baby sweater. You could knit it for me. Just sayin'.  Roll Eyes

I keep seeing this on tumblr! Didn't realize it was by a fellow craftsterer. So cool! The kind of sweater you could just live in.
