Make Up Your Mind - the complete sweater

And here it is, my summer sweater:

back of my summer sweater!

I planned it, I knit along, yet somehow, this sweater fell a bit short of the mark. I'll admit - I'm not really a summer sweater kind of girl. I prefer to knit thick, cable-y, dead-of-winter type sweaters. But I stepped outside my comfort zone, and knit the Make Up Your Mind sweater.

The design itself is awesome, Julie did a great job. But it's not really me.

It looks awesome in these pictures, and I love the color. But it's a cotton sweater, and it got wet, and there was some unfortunate stretching... ok, I maybe flashed a bit to much of the ol' chest. Good thing I was wearing a bathing suit underneath - that's all I have to say!

Ps. Photos were taken by my friend Melissa on Lake Michigan after a huge thunderstorm last week - isn't it beautiful!?

  3. That looks really good on you! Wow, I am so impressed with your skills- you finished it so fast! Even if this one's not your favorite piece ever, you could probably whip up another cute top in like 3 hours. You are amazing!
