[Picture-heavy post today!]
Yesterday I slipped my 28thirty on to take Boh around the block, and snapped a few pictures of me wearing it. Then I realized that it would be so worth it to sit down, sew on the buttons I’d chosen, and actually finish the sweater!
I can’t help it. I love this sweater. One more picture:
28thirty, by the Zephyr Girls.
yarn: Peace Fleece, colorway grassroots, 4.5 skeins (buttons from ebay)
needles: US 7
mods: lengthened body to hit at hips, followed pattern for yoke and sleeves, but found that sleeves were way too loose — decreased severely on either side of center underarm every other row until stitch count was down to the XS size. decreased a few more time as directed in the pattern at wrist. (I am mostly happy with how this turned out — will likely be useful when I layer this over lots of other things, but over a t-shirt, there is some extra room there in the chest near where the sleeves start.)
LOVE IT. It is perfect! Congrats!
Victory indeed! The red buttons are perfect…the whole sweater is perfect!! It looks great on you!
Wow! It looks great — and the red buttons are perfect. I hope having an awesome sweater makes the end of the semester more bearable. (I would like a new sweater for just that reason.)
Love your version!
The red buttons are sooo perfect. This sweater is a fantastic fit! Major win!
Oooh, it’s perfect! The red buttons bring out those little red flecks so nicely!
I agree – the red buttons are an excellent choice! Nice to see the FO! :) Give Boh a big belly rub for me… :)
Very nice! Simple but effective, and looks very comfy :)
Is it sad that I knew that it was Peace Fleece before reading the specs? :o) It looks great on you!!!
