Cam, that is just beautiful. You did a great job with the pattern. I understand about you feeling it is "gawdy", since you are used to solids, but it is perfect. It will go with your solid pants/shirts, and shirts that go under it.

I love it!!

Thanks, Merigold. When I tried it on I fully expected my reaction would be "My eyes! My eyes!!" LOL All those colors and all those stripes. But the list of what it goes with is growing. Who knew!? It might become a fave.

And it'll conveniently hide the effects of indulging those comfort foods.

I wondered if you made this all out of recycled yarns. Now that I know you did I am doubly impressed and in love with this sweater. You are a girl after my own heart. $2.00.

Merigold, some of us with those 'non-existent' knitting budgets do what we have to do! Using recycled also helps appease the angst of projects not turning out. I don't feel so bed when things go majorly awry.

Tried to take a pic of myself in the cardi. Apologies for the shaky blurs. (Only so much PhotoShop can do. )

I LOVE IT! Wonderful work! I made something similarly striped about 2 years ago...but took the easy route...using NORO self striping yarn...and wear the devil out of it! With skirts, with jeans...it seems like I throw it on over everything!

Great work! You are a very accomplished knitter! You did yours the artistic way!
