FO Sweater Yippie!!!
YAY i finally have a Sweater!!! If anyone remembers I was actually working on a sweater for my DS...but that just went ALL WRONG It was so bad I didn't even what to post what it looked like in the end... So I scrapped it. Then I decided I would REALLY take my time ...pray ... and.....TA-DA!!!!! I'm so proud of myself So this is for my DD its done with Lion Brand Wool Ease Thick & Quick in Raspberry. The pattern is actually . I made a few changes to make it easier for me. (changed: yarn, stitch type, no pocket hanging in the back). Ok so it might seem like i changed the whole pattern...I don't know how to explain it but i know for sure if i didn't find that pattern with all the measurements and drawings i wouldn't have ended up with what i have
