This was an old COA project from last summer that was finished about four months ago. The purplish gray yarn was from Rainbow Dyed Yarn - my first ever trip to Rhinebeck back in 2009. That was when I really didn't know what I was doing as a crocheter, let alone as a knitter. I do remember that the woman who sold me the skein warned me that I may want to purchase two for a bigger project. She was kinda right because the yardage was just enough where I couldn't really make anything more than a fairly long cowl for myself. The creme accent yarn is from the Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool that I always manage to keep in my stash, just in case.
As predicted the sleeves are already getting to be too short for Haze, but I will probably pull them out and make them shorter sometime this summer or fall and keep it that way. I figure, she will definitely get a few more years out of the garment this way. The iridescent purple buttons came from my favorite local yarn store, Yarn Cupboard, and were absolutely perfect for the sweater!
