Finally my Lauren FO :
Pattern : Lauren Jacket by weaverknits
Yarn: Harrisville Designs New England Highland in Colorway : 9176
Needles : US 8 cir 36" needles
Size : 34" bust
Mods : The pattern calls for a ribbed neckline but, I was really into the boat neck look that was happening so I decided to just stick with that and crochet finish the neck. I debated whether or not to make the sleeves full length but after trying it on, I liked the 3/4 length sleeve.
Buttons : Bought at knit new york, in a maroon-ish color. Accents the color of the sweater nicely.
Notes : I wore it out for the first time last night and boy was it warm. It is going to be perfect for those fall nights that are coming up and getting a little chillier. Looks great with a collared shirt under it. The yarn is a bit itchy so I'm not sure about wearing tank tops or tube tops under it which would be nice because of the boat neck but, I am not sure about my ability to handle the itchy-ness.
Update on Orangina - we made up, we're back on the right path. I am going to pay more attention to her and she isn't going to get mad at me and add stitches where I don't want them. I'm on my second of 9 skiens.
Today is errand day. Drop off the film, pick up the pills, get the photoshop for the computer that I miss so dearly, pick up the new sewing machine (that I didn't have to buy because my darling best friend -in photos of Lauren- is saving me a ton of money by giving me one from her old apartment), buy a new memory card for my new point and shoot camera (that my bed friend also gave me after I thought my camera had died- we figured out it was my memory card BUT, i still get the new camera) and last but not least, lunch with my Chelsea.
And I bid adieu with a photo my friend jonathan took of me while I was slinging booze.
