I am 37 years old, and excrutiatingly happily married. I was dianosed with Lupus 3 years ago. And I am blessed to have the best network of enlightened, supporting, loving friends and family I could imagine anyone having. I live off-grid in the Northern mountains of New Mexico in a Yurt. I have Solar power and an outhouse.

Finally!! This ended up being one of the longest projects ever! 8 months!! (Granted it spent a fair amount of time in the UFO basket) The kangaroo pocket tunic style sweater dress out of Knit Scene magazine. This is the one I ended up completely starting over when I was already 4 balls into it, due to huge errors in my pattern reading skills!! This was one of the fussiest patterns ever!! Not that it was hard so to speak, but many stitch changes, and lots of shaping, and multiple pieces to be sewn together at the end, and stitches to be picked up for the neck and pocket!
And for all of the shaping, the waistline is still very loose compared to what I thought it would be, but I've decided I'm Okay with it. It's definately meant to be a layering piece in my wardrobe, so the loose fit will work just fine.
The yarn was Knitpicks: Wool of the Andes: worsted weight, super wash. Can't beat the price!!
