Ladylike Pullover, and other lady-ly things

Well, the last Ravelympics project came off the hooks at somewhere around 10 on the final day of the events! That means I finished an entire crochet pullover in less than 17 days (keep in mind that I didn't start the sweater until a few days into the events!). All in all, I'm happy with the results. Crocheting is super fun, yo!

Pattern: Ladylike Pullover, free pattern from Lion Brand Yarn
Yarn: Full O' Sheep (one of the new Stitch Nation yarns) in fuchsia
Modifications: I omitted the turtleneck because I noticed that this yarn is incredibly WARM and somewhat itchy. I thought a turtleneck would be too much. Also, I made necessary modifications to correct the pattern, which was messed up (as I ranted about in the previous post). Otherwise, the sweater was knit to pattern specifications
Verdict: I like it. It sort of fits me now (over my big prego belly), but I don't think it will fit me after I'm done having babies. :/ It might go to my mother next winter. It looks nice on her:

Wouldn't you agree?

I also crocheted this for my mommy in two days:

It's a cowl/hood thing knit out of Plymouth Baby Alpaca Grande. My mom picked and purchased the yarn and then put me to work. It was done in no time. I LOVE the yarn. I've decided to make another one for me because it was so fast, easy, and OMG SOFT.
