Pattern: Chantal by French Girl
Yarn: Rowan Big Wool #41 Acer
Comments: You aren't suffering from vertigo. One of my 6-year-olds took the picture. Such is the life of a mother whose husband works late.

Love the pattern. I had the whole thing done in about 4 days. I think it is kind of Anthropologie-esque. The ribbing makes it figure flattering, even for a big yarn knit. I think it will become my toss on sweater whenever I get a chill.

There are a few mistakes in the pattern, which I emailed to the French Girl. If you have any questions (Stefanie) before she has them posted, just shoot me an email.

The sweater looks great on you. I love the green little cardi you made too, and those slippers for your daugthers look adorable. You look very beautiful in your wedding photo too. Nice to see your hubby on the blog too, so now I know where your daugther's get their beautiful olive complexions from.

Another hit for French Girl! And I rather like the vertigo effect. I think your daughter may have a career in fashion photography ahead of her.
