Creamsicle de pompom quarterly revisited

Voila! Creamsicle as a jumper! it is finished and I love it ! J’adore le petit look de ce petit pull de couleurs inhabituelles !!!

The original pattern from issue 9 of Pompom Quarterly by Sarah Hurwitz was written for the making of a cardigan. There is nothing wrong with the cardigan at all.

Bonjour 2015

2014 is gone and to be honest I am glad it is :0) I am ready for a new year of learning, creating and sharing.
