Haiku in Teal
This pattern is called Haiku and I got it free from Knitty. I started it last winter to see if it was easy enough for a beginning knitter. I found it again the last week or so and finished up the last sleeve and got the buttons on it. :cheering: for me. I'm not good about getting back to stale projects.

It is designed using your own yarn and gauge and you plug it into the pattern. I thought it was very easy and I like the boxy design. In the picture my neckline looks all wonky but it wasn't really. :??

The yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease and it is teal despite the picture. The design seems slightly Oriental to me and I got buttons that had that feel. They are gold and have a little bluish flower etched on them. DH had a hard time getting good pictures. The closeup he did in the computer's scanner, the color is off, but you can see the buttons a little better than any other picture he got.

I gave the sweater to a friend's granddaughter.


And the scanner closeup----

That's so cute! I've made the baby one, but someday I'd like to make the adult version, too.
