Springtime in Hollis Sweater

This is my attempt at the Springtime in Hollis Sweater by Teresa of Comfort Wool. I am not a Knitter, I'm just a knitter, so I made some basic mistakes on this one. I used acrylic, which for me, is not a good idea when knitting. It's much harder to see the individual yarn strands with acrylic, and it's sticks to itself and isn't very forgiving. Wool next time, for sure.

Also, I am a novice stitch picker upper, and boy it shows on this one! One button band is a good inch shorter than the other one. Gah! And it's not like you can block acrylic. It doesn't stretch out right. It's stiff in all the wrong places. Have I mentioned I won't use acrylic on this again?

Anyway, I did short sleeves because I was afraid I would run out of yarn, and so I plan on doing a longer sleeved version, but here's this first attempt, and Khloe loves it, which is the main thing.
