Thanks so much guys. I like it too. It is very springy. My SO saw it and very slowly said....
I do think I'm gonna save it for spring/summer.

Really good pattern...easyish to follow, and a good way for newbies to learn shaping as part of a project that doesn't really depend on it being done 100% perfect to be recognizable when it's done. I think I may have missed an decrease or two and left it, and it was no problem.
Really fun - I started another as a belated Christmas gift.
Different yarn, (some blue sky bulky that was far too thick for anything else) so it's like a brand new experience.
