At school a couple weeks ago, one of the 1st grade teachers was wearing a super cute short sleeve sweater.   After developing an acute case of sweater-envy, I decided that I was smart enough to knit a copy for myself.  I dug through my stash and found some half knitted chunky grey wool which I then un-knit and re-knit into a sweater.  I knit a neck band, picked up stitches along the edge and used the proportions from cosmicpluto’s top down raglan sweater.  Size 13 needles and chunky yarn means a quick sweater!  The yarn was a little musty so I washed it and it grew.  I love the length that it ended up, but now my carefully planned waist shaping is now butt shaping.  Best laid plans.  Now I need a button.

Not a great picture.
