Hello Spring

We're waiting with bated breath for spring to arrive. It's really been touch and go around here with freezing temps, hail and the like this week. Today, however there is hope.

This seemed liked a good time to take a finished object photo. This sweater caught my eye when Stephanie Perl-McPhee blogged about it and I have to say, I agree with most of what she had to say.
I finished it right around Christmas and from the time it was damp from it's first wash, I have reached for it every time I wanted a quick, going out the door sweater. I did get lazy and didn't knit the belt part and really, I'm okay with that.
Yarn- Madelinetosh dk, 4 skeins (900yds, I knit to about two yards left in the 4th skein), colorway Toast
Smallest size and still had a bit of positive ease.
Pattern is a Knitting Pure and Simple pattern, #263

And for those paying attention, yes my hair is a drastically different color... I've decided to return to my roots (hehe) and go a bit more natural. We'll see how that works out.
