I dunno, perhaps I will learn to love it...

It feels more like a bed jacket than a sweater. Could be the cotton I used. It wasn't the pattern. That was great! I am not even going to tell you what this sweater is because everyone knows already about this pattern. I think between this and the clapotis it is the most popular pattern out there! I think if I make another one I will definately use wool. You don't know how glad I am that this is done. I feel like I can start something new. Or perhaps finish up something old..... nah.

I think it's cute and the size lends itself to layering, which you know you will need to start doing soon.

I agree about the layering, and how adorable it is!!

It turned out very nice! But I agree that it's too big. Would it fit your mom?

It's really cute! I'm sorry it turned out too big; that's a bummer.

AARRGGHH! I hate it when that happens! For what it's worth, it is a beautiful sweater, though. Maybe you could gain some weight? It might be worth it. The holidays are coming so it probably wouldn't be to hard...

Wooo! Good job! Sorry it turned out so big, but the sweater itself looks great :)

Bummer! It is beautiful though and I agree about the layering possibilities.

I think it looks nice and squishy warm!!

Hmmm...since it's cotton maybe a hot water wash will shrink it up a bit?

very cute!

All that time!!! I'd try the shrinking thing, as well. It looks great even though it's the wrong size. Gonna make another? :-D
