Notes: Daniella looks smashing in the new sweater! I'm very happy with how it turned out. The pattern gives you option to leave the front open to wear as a cardigan, or sew it up for a pullover. I opted for a pullover. Because of the irregular shape and the stockinette on the edges, I have to arrange it and let the front overlap just so, or it would hang crooked. It's been very warm for the past few weeks, and I look forward to being able to wear it myself. In the mean time, I'm very happy I have Daniella modeling the sweater, and I get to take pictures any way I like.
Happy Friday! Join the party on Andrea's blog, Tami's blog, and leave me a comment!
