My friends are getting married this weekend (congrats, Vickie and Aidan!), so I thought, hey, wouldn't it be nice to make a sweater to wear to the ceremony. So 2 days ago I decided, yep, that's exactly what I want to do. Planning isn't exactly my strong suit.

After sifting through my stash I found a few balls of Classic Elite Fresco in blue turquoise, which has been waiting for a project such as this. Awesome. So I:

Perused my stitch books--found one for a twisted openwork

Took some quick measurements--what was my gauge again?

Thought about my time frame--figured on a shrug

And bam {insert sound of majestic chorus singing an epiphanic tune of joy and inspiration}! A sweater was born.

Well, it's being born. Still gotta finish a sleeve, sew it up, and knit a collar.

My first lady sweater pattern made under the pressure of a few days. Love it.

p.s. If this thing comes out funky, I'm totally not posting pictures of the finished product.
