YOU ARE A GENIUS! That sweater is beautiful! From pattern to color to draping, but that you made that button too...VERY COOL! If I knew where your closet was I'd steal it. Because I know if I try to make this it just won't be the same...Very nice work!

** I just looked at the original on Knitty--I like your colorway and button so much better...you need to submit a pic to them!

That really is nice, and looks great on you. I'm impressed that you made the button as I never would have thought of using a wooden spoon and power tools.

BTW: I like your sweater better than the blue one shown on the model! Something about your yarn makes it look nicer!

That is absolutely GORGEOUS! The colour is lovely too. I've been coveting that Misti Alpaca for months- what a great sweater for it.

All I can say is Wow! That is impressive! I loved the sweater in the pattern, but I like the drape of yours better. Far less chunky looking.

Anyway, great job!

I just have to say it again! Your sweater should have been the model sweater! The model sweater looks so stiff and chunky. Kinda clunky.

Yours is divine.

I printed the pattern this weekend, and I will use a yarn similar to yours! I am glad you paved the way for me!
