All that was left to do on it was sew up the left side/arm seam and do the collar. I did the side seam this week and made the collar I had designed. Tried it on and this is what it looks like now.
I was greatly disappointed in it. It was had no real shape to it other than the sleeves which were my own design. The body of this sweater did nothing for a full figured woman. In fact, it made a full figure look even fuller! Anyway, I am reclaiming the yarn and have picked out a poncho pattern to make with it. That will suit our weather here better anyway.
I have never made them before. They were the easiest candy I have ever done. It is all done in the microwave and took me about 5 minutes from start to finish. Now, here is why I made them this year...................Hubby bought peanuts from our bulk grocery bins. When he got home he grabbed a handful of them and started eating them. He got a funny look on his face and then it turned into a sad face. He was thinking he had purchased dry roasted peanuts but instead had purchased salted peanuts. He was going to throw them away but I told him I would find a recipe in which to use them. Ta-da! I have enough Vanilla bark to make half of what I made the first time. I will be making that today and taking them to our family Christmas dinner along with other goodies I have been making this year.
