Overdue FO #2

 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!
