I am so thankful for the weather to occasionally cooperate with me on picture taking.

This project seemed to go on for freaking EVER. Started March 23 and finished April 11. But I guess that’s what you get when you make an oversize laceweight sweater on 2’s. S’my fault.

I was completely not sold on the pattern when I first tried it on without arms. Now I’m a huge fan… mostly because of how awesome this picture turned out:

Looooooove.

Thoughts:

Pattern is well written. Exactly what I expected from Veera. My only problem is when it calls to pick up an exact number of stitches after told to knit to a certain length. Some fudging was needed.

Bonus pic because I am me:

What happens when your hair looks like butt and you don’t know what to do with it. Shake shake shake!
