February Sweater

I'm not losing my mind...I know it is March and the title says "February Sweater," but I got a little behind on one of my knitting projects.  I would have liked to finish this back in February, seeing as how I could have worn it the past few days, surprisingly. Instead, I got sidetracked with a few other projects, such as Amy's birthday cowl, Bennett's cute little cardigan and my quilted lattice cowl. I will include pictures of these projects on here soon!

Now back to my current project: February Sweater.  It is a free pattern that I found on Ravelry by Pamela Wynne called "February Lady Sweater."  I strolled across this one day and noticed that it wasn't too difficult and doesn't require a lot of yarn.  Two things that I look for in knitting projects, the latter because I'm on a super tight budget right now.  It can't be too difficult because it currently has 12,629 projects linked to it on Ravelry, by some of the 3 million users.  Holy crap!  It's a pretty popular pattern!  

I am using KnitPicks Wool of the Andes yarn in colorway Lava Heather.  Very pretty color that I can't determine if it's red, pinkish or purple yet, but I like it.  So far the knitting has been easy; I feel that I probably should have knitted more on the yoke part before starting the lattice pattern, but it fits just fine right now.  I have three buttonholes now, but I'm thinking I might sew one up when I'm finished so there's only looks a little odd.  I wish I could have it finished by tomorrow, since it will only be 39 degrees here!  I'll aim to have it finished by April 1st though. 

My progress as of today
