Us chubby gals can have pretty handmade sweaters too! I just finished this one for me, me, me! I am washing and sizing it now then I plan on wearing it to dinner with my dd, sil and grandson tomorrow night. I noticed the lighting in the room makes the color look weird, but it is a nice country peach color.
I loved knitting this as it was only the third real patterned work I have done and the first one where the sides and middle were different from each other than one continuous pattern.
Thanks for looking.

Looks wonderful. I also knit this pattern last year and wear it frequently.

Did you use Bamboozle?

Thank you for letting the ladies know what the pattern was! For the lady that ask me if I used bamboozle, no. I had a whole bunch of Caron Simply soft left from some baby stuff so I used it up. Just be careful if you use Simply Soft as it has no dye lots and if you don't buy enough you could end up with color matching problems.
