Shimmer Blue

Remember that sweater I was working on?  I finished it almost two weeks ago!  It was one of the things I worked on while I was procrastinating about making Hubby's shirt, LOL!  You know it's bad when you'd rather sew the pieces of a sweater together than make a shirt!

I finally wore it for the first time on Saturday, and got Hubby to snap a couple of pics.



I really love it.  I'm glad I decided to make a second one in blue.  This color is called "Calm" and that's the effect it has on me!  Saturday was warm but breezy, especially where we were by the lake, so this was the perfect layer to wear!

And it took me so long to post this, I'm already half way done with my next sweater!!
