barbroandersen 's Thoughts:

I’m so proud of this DIY! I knitted the whole thing yesterday evening, and added the finishing touches today. It’s funny; because the only thing I’ve finished knitting before is a scarf, and I’ve never actually worn it. I couldn’t wait to try this one on, though – and skipped my make-up so that I could take pictures of it while it was still daylight. I love it! What do you think? I didn’t have a recipe, I just kind of went for it – and that’s probably why it turned out so well. I’m no good with recipes and such.
