Slacker Sweater

Belted with an amazing belt from my fav, Anthropologie.

This was literally a year in the making from start to finish. The yarn was a pain to work with and I swore that I would never ever use cotton yarn again (more on that aonther time). I also used a different yarn for the trim which just made for almost unbearably slooooow going and I don't recommend it. At least the end result is a good one, no?

The Low Down
Yarn: Louisa Harding nautical cotton, Louisa Harding Glisten for the trim.
Modifications: I just made it a tad longer and the sleeves a tad shorter.

I must mention the lack of real good photos. Boy, it is so hard to take pictures of yourself. Seriously, even with a tripod, if the lights not right or your pose is off or a kid runs into the picture the picture is blown. It's really easy to talk myself out of a photo shoot. If it weren't for that I'd probably blog more often. I hate taking the photos, there I said it. I like creating the "things" and talking about them but I really dislike the taking of the photo, uploading and placing the picture on the blog. UGH! So I'm sorry for the lame photos but it was this or wait another month for the stars to align.
