Showin' Off

After nearly 3 months, I finally finished the Circle Jacket.  It's been a tricky one bcause it's too big to really carry anywhere so I could only really work on it at home.  Luckily, I've been spending a lot of time at home on my bum not really doing much of anything else.  So when I wasn't drop dead tired, I worked on this.

Why is it called a Circle Jacket?  Well... it's seriously ntohing more than a giant circle with arm holes. 

See?

It was a bit of an adventure when I ran out of yarn with literally 3 rounds left ont he last sleeve.  * sigh*  Luckily I was able to find more of the exact yarn through Yarn Market and they were nice enough to let me come to their warehouse in Pickerington to pick it up yesterday.  I so love Yarn Market. 

Anyway, there it is.  And I truly adore this sweater.  Quick, EASY as pie to make and end result is super pretty.  The pattern is here if you're interested. (It's a free pattern but please respect copyrights) As I said it's just a big circle, with a simple 3 row pattern repeat.  All Triple Crochets.  I've found some other finished projects of this pattern on Ravelry that folks have done with STUNNING colors.  There's one rainbow one that caught my breath.  Love it!
