A Knit A Week

Verdict:  This is the first sweater that I have made for myself that I have not totally hated and/or given away because it looked better on someone else. {grin}  That makes me happy.  It is so snuggly and warm.  A perfect a fall day/a not bitter cold winter day/a bright spring day jacket.  And it was a super fast knit!
Some notes of interest:
The lining fabric is an Amy Butler decorator print which I ♥ with all my heart!! From this great fabric site!
The buttons are from an amazing etsy seller.  She made them of out of a vintage fabric and they are oh, so fun and unique!

Pattern:  Anise (a freebie on the Rowan website)

Yarn:  Rowan Big Wool, a super bulky, quick to knit with yarn.

Pardon my oh, so, somber face.  Taking pictures of yourself without a dorky expression is very hard to do, especially with a little Prince tugging at your pant legs screaming for "JUICE PWEESE MAMA!!  PWEESE JUICE!!!" {grin}
