FO: Manos del Uruguay pullover
My own "re-jiggered" design. Started with a "basic" pullover, but by the time I was done changing just about everything except the basic schematic...it has re-invented itself!

Here I am...no makeup, flat hair...but loving the fact that it fits me pretty good,
even now before I lose more weight. By Fall-Winter, it will look better on me.

Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Clasica Wool "Naturals"
Original Pattern: "Extra Quick Rolled-Hem Top"
Book: 25 Gorgeous Sweaters for the Brand New Knitter

My Ravelry notes, if you are interested.

That looks like a comfy, snuggling pullover. I will we had sweater weather down here. Winters are just too mild for pullovers. Cardis are better for layering.

I always love to see your FOs!!! Thanks for sharing.

Wow, that's gorgeous! I love the subtle color changes of the Manos, and the stitch pattern on the bodice. Lovely work, and you look great!

That's gorgeous! I love what you did with the neckline - so flattering and will look great with many different "undershirt" options!
