Thank you to everyone for your kind comments on my new sweater. DD#1 and I went out this morning and took a few modeled photos. I'll post more of them soon.
I've been very busy crunching numbers and writing the patterns for this sweater which will be known as "Acer" and my "Staccato" striped hoodie. Both will be sent to test knitters in the next few days, so you may expect patterns soon. Thanks for your patience on Staccato. I wanted to get that pattern out sooner, but the Socktoberfest knitalong that I am hosting over on Ravelry has been taking more of my time than I originally had thought it would.
For those who asked, the yarn that I used for Acer is Peace Fleece worsted in Shaba Green. I barely broke into the fifth skein.
