Remember this sweater?  I started it back in April.  Then ripped it out back in June.  (Remember our friends who like yarn, too?)  And, finally finished it at the beginning of August.
I made the body a few inches longer than the pattern calls for, as I didn't want it to be cropped.  The sleeves were shortened by 2 inches as the pattern calls for extra long.  It was fun working on the "mesh lace" pattern.  That kept it interesting.  
I love the high/low aspect of this sweater. Anything that covers my behind is always a welcome piece of clothing!

  2. You do know that when you wear that to work people are going to be disappointed it's not available at the shop, don't you? The mods are so great. I like the extra coverage myself as well. Xo

  6. I remember seeing this on Rav and thinking, no, a cropped sweater is not for me. But you've made it into something gorgeous for real grownups! I've been back and added it to my queue now ;)
