not knitting

This is my latest sweater. It is a crochet pattern from Leisure Arts. I made it for my best friend's b-day that is coming up. I've been promising her a sweater since she saw the first one I made for myself (almost a year now). One of the reasons I procrastinated is because of my anxiety over getting the correct sizing. My friend is a big gal and I really, really did not want to under-estimate the size. I tried to do the whole thing as a surprise, but ended up taking the pattern book to her and asking her the correct size. After that, I still had her try it on before I started on the sleeves, just to make sure.

The yarn is Caron Simply soft in raspberry and black. While I really like the pattern, the directions left a lot to be desired. I realize there are going to be errors on just about any pattern, but 2 major errors in the same pattern is a bit much. Luckily, they weren't that hard to figure out and correct.
