I'm a leaf on the wind!


The yarn is not splotchy, it's just that the sweater is still drying on the rack. It's also incomplete, still needing buttons. I'm hoping for leaf-shaped buttons to complete the whole "I'm a leaf on the wind" theme.

It's the Incredible Custom-fit Raglan, with a leaf-pattern insert taken from a stitchionary. The yarn is a very light weight cotton, so that the breeze will float it... thus, leaves on the wind.

Well, here it is all finished! not leaf buttons, but I like it anyway. Btw: the spots are on my mirror, not my camera. Now you all know how dirty I really am! YIKES!

Oh, Moni, that is beautiful beyond words! And I do so love the color I'm glad you have your priorities straight, I say before cleaning any day, cleaning can wait.

Wonderful sweater, Monidew! I really do love it! Well, you might eventually find the leaf buttons. That's an easy thing to change!

Reminds me of a pullover I knit last year.
