I'm finished!

I actually finished it a few months ago but was waiting for the right buttons!

This isn't a very good picture, but was snapped early in the morning after dressing for work, but it is RED, a Knit Picks Alpacha and Silk yarn, and Jean Frost jacket design. I altered the pattern by adding bust darts. I'm very pleased with the fit -except that I wish the sleeves were a "tad" longer - maybe a full inch. I find that I tug at the sleeves on a regular basis.

The buttons were purchased at the Stitches Midwest Market from the Geddes Studio I purchased fused glass pins and buttons from them before at Stitches West, so I was thrilled to find them at Ss Midwest this year. I think I have more money in the buttons than in the yarn!

I'm wearing the sweater to work this week and getting great compliments. It is professional enough to team with pants and not look too casual, thanks Jean Frost!

I've enjoyed seeing others designs and red sweaters, thanks for letting me be a part of the KAL! Be sure to visit my website and let me know what you think!
