in Gucci

Guccimahogany I did it! I finished the Gucci Inspired sweater. I wore it to work today, and have a few things I want to fix. First, the buttons need to have some gold or brass in them. I think it will bring out the color. Second, I need to adjust part of the placket…it just fit funny at one part. And this sweater is SO warm! I am usually freezing at work, but after some hot coco, I was literally sweating. Sweating! Can you believe it?!

But I LOVE this yarn. I was skeptical at first, but I LOVE it! I think it’s very soft, and warm. I want to buy tons of it to make tons of warm comfy sweaters, but I won’t. I have to use what it left in my stash. I do…from now on, that’s it! once I am done with what I have, I might entertain the idea of more yarn.

Anyway, I am going to really work on the pattern once school is out. The final is next week, so don’t fret! I will also try to get a good picture of me in the sweater.

Pattern: My Own
Yarn: Knit Picks Cadena in Mahogany
Needles: Denise Size 9 and 11
Notes: I so didn’t spend $1000 on this sweater! Now, I just need Angie Harmon to model it for me!

Looks great! I agree on the gold or brass buttons too.

Funny…I was in New York City this weekend, and my sweetie and I browsed all the super fancy stores on Madison Avenue.
And we strolled into the Gucci store and suprrised myself when I saw (and touched) the “inspiration sweater.” Have to admit – yours looks like a dead ringer for it.
Congrats on such a great sweater.
