Somehow I’ve gotten myself into a sleeve quagmire. I’ve had three projects going at once, and now all three are in the sleeve phase. Well, they were until I finished this pullover (and now I’m only bogged down with two). It’s billed as “a quick knit” and “simple” but took me over a year to complete. I’m sure it couldn’t possibly be because I changed the pattern (eh?)! Well, that and I have too many projects going at once!
Anywhoo, the color is actually Currant from Knitpicks, but it washed out in the pic: http://www.knitpicks.com/yarns/Shine_Sport_Yarn__D5420122.html
The top is based on this pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/arleen
And the leaf lace is from this hat: http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall07/PATTfoliage.html
I didn’t include the waist shaping, but it doesn’t seem to need it. Also, it’s supposed to only have 5 buttons, but in addition to being physically unable to follow a pattern, yours truly can’t count either!
