The ladies in my knitting group will be so proud of me for finally finishing this thing.
It's from Phildar Special Twenty (Autumn/Winter 05-06).  I think I deserve a gold star for translating this pattern.   Grin  It's a rather strange construction where you knit the right front and sleeve at the same time, do the back, then knit the left front and sleeve.  Then you seam it.  And you do short row shaping on the sleeves, which seems weird, but it works.  
We joked that I was knitting asymetrical baby pants, because that's what it looked like when I got the the back.
I also thought it looked like a green tiger skin on my floor when I was blocking it.

I wasn't too crazy about it when I finished knitting it.  the sleeves weren't the right length and I thought it would be too bulky around the neck.  But now that I finally have it all put together I really like it.  I can't wait for cold weather again!

I didn't do the flower pin because I'm just not into knitted flowers.

yarn: Araucania Nature Wool Chunky

It is a little bulky, but I think it's ok.  I'm ok with it and that's what counts.  I'm just so happy to finally be done!

Very pretty! I find that most short sweaters, although cute, don't look that great on. Not so for this - the curved shape is just so elegant and flattering.

that's the yoke vest from loop-d-loop.  I tried taking a better photo than I already had.  (I do own a tripod.. I'm just lazy)


methinks I need to move someplace that actually has a winter....


I just looked.  Apparently, they do sell Special Twenty with an English insert on Knit 'n' Thyme
