Though I have to admit, sometimes I pair this sweater with Blue, the color of little falls of rain, or White, the color of singing soliloquies about stars.
I really do like how this sweater turned out, even if it took forever and a half to get it done. And then pictures...I was going to reshoot these. Make myself look more like Eponine, who I love. Because seriously, the chair pictures in front of our one window? Not exactly cutting the mustard...But it's all I have.

I have some clothes that go out of wash, onto body. They're the things that always seem to be in the wash if I want to wear them, unless I just did the laundry. (Ah, the life of a lazy college freshman). This is one of them. I love this sweater...mostly. I made the sleeves a tad too short and the sleeve caps a tad too shallow, which makes it a little awkward to wear if I don't semi-block it well after the trip through the old washing machine.
Pattern: February Fitted Pullover by Amy Herzog
Yarn: Hobby Lobby Bamboospun in Dark Rust
Techniques and modifications: I added an inch in between the waist shaping. I also (and this is the big one) lengthened the sleeves from three-quarter to full length. Though apparently not enough.

|Lace detail: I love this lace in this yarn! So fluffy... :)|
