Thanks, jenelle. I just took inventory of my measly stash of acrylic, and seeing as I had to convert the numbers on this pattern from DK to worsted, I think I might have enough to make another one. Quick and easy.
Was really fun making something so small (took only a couple days for the actual sweater...a bit of time to weave all the ends) and being I don't ever have occasion to work top down, enjoyed the technique for this purpose given my very limited amt of yarn (as I attempted to allocate it for balanced striping).
Thanks, ArtLady! I rewound the rest of my stash and have been eyeing it for another possible tiny sweater. I was working on a cardi for myself that didn't meet my expectations so that's gonna be frogged. A little project would make for a nice diversion while I ponder my strategy on the one for moi.
