Yay, yay, yay!
Warning: Picture Overload
I've gotta tell you...this was so much fun to make! Maybe it's because I rarely crochet clothing and I've been crocheting lots of doilies over the past year, but whatever it was, I loved every minute of it. I didn't even really get mad that I had to start completely over after spending a couple of hours starting it.
I tried it on before starting the edging to make sure it was long enough for me, and I was surprised at how comfortable it is. The cowl neck is made with Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn, so it's really soft. Plus the opening is big since it's a cowl neck. I love it!
