I even wore it today…
It really glows in the late sun… which was gone while we were taking the photos. Actually, we had to go inside to get DH’s camera. He’s a great photographer of mushrooms and other plants, but when he takes pics with my super skinny point and shoot, he shakes the camera.
So, I’m holding up the mushrooms used to dye the sweater… old (brown) and new (yellow), both are dried out here. The color is brightest using the new.
In the end it’s a bit loose and I could probably have made it a bit smaller. I would keep all the waist shaping though. I might shorten the sleeves. More details over on my Ravelry project page.

My mum came to visit over the weekend… we had a great time. She’s a hoot. We didn’t do much, it was just nice to spend time with her.
I’m taking a conversational Spanish class through Augusta’s adult ed… I am enjoying it well enough, but wish it were a bit more challenging. So I’ve taken to writing in a notebook every day (which I just started two days ago!). I’m hoping this will spur me to remember how to conjugate verbs, remember vocabulary, etc.
