One

If I wait for good pictures of me wearing this sweater, I might never get around to posting about it! (Too dark by the time my husband gets home, forgot with my parents last weekend, and have you ever seen the type of picture a 2 1/2 year old takes!)

So, without further ado, I proudly introduce my very first NaKniSweMoDo sweater! (It's natural habitat when I'm not wearing it...)

It is, of course, the delightful February Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne. (One of 3,753 projects on Ravelry as of this AM!)
Yarn - Cascade 220 Heathers, 5 skeins
Needles - Addi Turbo US 8 (5 mm), 40 inch and 16 inch
Buttons - white oak from The Button Shop
Dates Knitting: While technically I started this on my birthday (Dec. 17, 2008), I set it aside at the end of that day and didn't touch it again until January 1 as it was my first NaKniSweMoDo sweater. It was finished on January 13, 2009.
This was a very fast, very easy knit. I'm delighted with the results, and am thrilled with my new round-the-house cardigan!
And I'll try to get pictures of me wearing it just as soon as possible.....

Beautiful!! The buttons and the sweater. I don't know how I missed this earlier in the week.
