So I haven't posted anything lately because I have been re-doing this sweater for my aunt for Mother's Day (Yes, I know it was months ago). I started this with plenty of time, but I wasn't happy with the finished product so I started over. The pattern is written terribly, so I guessed at half of it (apparently wrongly). And it did not fit correctly. Even with proper gauge, it did not come out the second time to fit the way I wanted it to. I guess I am going to have to start making everything extra extra large because I don't know anyone who could wear any of the other sizes the way the pattern is written. All the patterns I have tried so far seem to be running so small.
Here is a close up of the pattern so that you can see the pretty yarn:
I'm not sure if it's going to come across on the pictures, but the sweater is styled like a blazer and can pull together if you want it to. This is the ring I used as a closure (ignore the stitch marker)
Now, let's see what else I can make! I imagine I would get a lot more done if I could quit doing everything twice!
