FO: Short Sleeved Sweater
I just finished a little tiny short sleeved sweater for my mom. (I only wish I were as tiny as she is!) It only took me 3 days and I'm really pleased with the way it's turned out. I used this pattern but modified it a little bit and some novelty yarn from Hobby Lobby they had 50% off. It's called Italia. It's nice because it knits up so quick! :XX:

Don't mind my helper in the picture. He wouldn't let me take a better picture! This picture was taken after wiping nose marks off the camera lens a couple times! LOL So of course I had to leave him in the pic! He'd tried to hard to be in it, after all.

That's very, very pretty.

I think someone else has "laid" claim to it.
