is that sort of like christmas in july?
so, obviously, i have been working on this baby off and on since the pattern came out. oi. but i am finally finally done. just in time for winter term reading week. and you know, i really like it!
i moved the hooks (2 of them) down, because i find that anything that opens over my belly just makes me look a little pregnant. and i think i made the sleeves a few inches longer, but that was only because i wasn't paying attention at the time Smiley
good to be finished, though.

sorry for the mirror pictures! (wow, i need to get out the windex, huh?)

thanks! it's knitty's spring fling, and can be found here: http://knitty.com/ISSUEspring05/PATTspringfling.html it came out a fair bit shorter on me than in the model picture, but other than that, it worked out just as it said it would.

wow, I really like how you moved the hooks down, makes a huge difference.  That sweater just went from " oh that's cute" to " I NEED THAT SWEATER!!"

nicely done Smiley

i love that i always see things on knitty and dont think too much of them, but when craftsters post their pictures they are always MUCH better looking and more appealing to me. awesome job!
