The sweater, finally

Ok, I promised... so here it is- the finished black sweater, complete with the original catalog photo for comparison.

(Can we talk about the Anthropologie models for just a moment? I have no problem with skinny models, but man, those women are skinny. Sometimes it is kind of creepy looking...)

On another note, I went to the San Francisco Flower and Garden Show this morning. While I was there I bought two orchids, and one of the orchid sellers gave me some spanish moss too. The moss is making one of my cats go completely bezerk- I had to put it in an enclosed conatiner to keep her from ripping it to pieces and eating it. Go figure. But anyway, the show was lovely- trees plants and flowers everywhere, and the whole place smells like jasmine (I swear they pump in perfume). There are worse ways to spend a Saturday!

Wow! The sweater looks fab. Very chic in black, and far better than the original one.

I like your black sweater better than the one shown on the pattern. ...and you look a hell of a lot better than that anorexic model. She needs a sammich!

Your sweater is beautiful. Great job there!

And are those actually her arms? The one in the red sweater? Medic!
