I actually made something for myself and I did it in about a months time (another shocker!)
It all started with a post from Soule Mama in which there was a sweater that I loved. It linked back to Ravelry which is where the magic began . If you don't know about ravelry and you are a knitter or crocheter then please check it out right after you read this post. After looking at the pattern and decideing that I had to make this sweater I used the yarn suggestions tab to see what had been used and Ravelry told me I already had a yarn in my stash that would work. Ahhh? WOW! It turned out I had the perfect amount required for this project. I cast on that very day and here are the results!

(With Modifications that can be found on Ravelry)
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay color Wildflowers (113)
and a tiny bit of yarn I spun (the dk purple cuffs)
Needles: 10 1/2 Addi turbos
Different shirt and flash
I have to mention the buttons because, well, it's kinda like someone saw my sweater and then made these buttons for it. The teaser from a few posts ago is a close up of a the button. I searched for about a half hour , was just about to settle, when I bent down to pick something that had fallen to the ground and there they were. Perfect wouldn't you say?
