yarn: knitpicks wool of the andes, pumpkin
modifications: not very many modifications, actually. i added four stitches to each front panel and to the sleeves. i also extended the buttonhole band to make the neckline not quite so deeply v'ed. the armhole shaping on the back and front panels was wonky in the pattern, so i short of just winged it.
on to the photos already! relaxing in the sunshine on the floor of my kitchen. because, hey, that's what i do.
here she is! so pretty. oh, and note the boombox appearance.
i just like this picture.
here's one of me not in the sunshine. i love the rich color of this yarn. it's a little itchy on the skin, but that never bothers me too much.
i think i've officially gotten over my fear of buttons and buttonhole bands with this sweater. look at how evenly it lines up! awesome.
