I have had this completed for oh so long. I have worn it to work, to tony's parent's house, out for a drive. But I never took good enough pictures, so I did not want to post about it. This blog has been neglected for a while, so I regardless of how I feel about the pictures, here it is - ms. marigold.
I decided to not do the crochet sleeves, cause, ha - I don't know how to crochet! Plus, I thought that it looked too "girlie" and I did not think I could pull off that look. I love the color, and the neckline, I even tried it with an "office" look (see picture below). It will look great in the fall and in the winter as a vest - don't you think? The only problem I have with this one is that I do not know how to bind off loosely. My cast off edge is way too tight, and it makes the bottom kinda roll under. Does that make sense? Does anyone have any other ideas on how to bind off loosely?
Anyways, overall a nice lovely, easy knit. I am obsessed with knitting in the round from top to bottom, and get kinda annoyed when my favorite new patterns are knit the conventional way. Maybe one day I will get good enough to convert my own patterns.
More pics (cutest little brother ever - eh?):

Alterations: I did the sleeves in a 2k2p rib for 5 rows, as opposed to the crocheted (sp?) sleeves the original pattern called for.
