Well here it is, my new warm and woolly sweater. Just in time for spring. I've always suffered from impeccable timing. But regardless of the beautiful weather out my window, I'm pretty excited about my new knit.
Here are those all-important stats...

Mods: Due to my gauge, I ended up knitting the largest size in order to fit a 38" bust. Oh, and I added quite of bit of length to the torso and the arms.
This is the best kind of pattern. Easy to knit and darling to boot. It goes to show you, a cute sweater doesn't need a lot of bells and whistles, just lots and lots of buttons. And after visiting two separate JoAnn's, I was able to get those pesky buttons. Who knew finding 42 matching was such a herculean task?
But in the end, all that effort was worth it. Don't you think so?
There's just one thing. I worry that with this sweater, people will keep saying to me, "Nice hooters." (Sorry, Mom and Dad, I couldn't help myself.)
