I gave my friend Julie her birthday gift today, so I can finally post it here. (She loved it)(yay!)
Pattern: None. Made it up. Forgot to write down things like gauge, cast on amount etc. Oops. I got the chart for the colorwork on the front from here (tons of norwegian type color work charts and assorted free patterns)
Yarn: Recycled, dyed in my kitchen, from stash... 100% wool is about the only thing I know about it.
I woke up one morning with the idea of making a cushion that looks like a sweater. I wish I took more notes on it. As I knit it, I kept alternating between thinking it was a good idea and thinking it was a stupid idea. I think, all in all, it was a good idea and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.
