It's not going to look like the picture-

I cast on thinking I could make this sweater.  
It called for 10 skeins of Ole Ole, Fibre Content: 60% Cotton/ 40% Acrylic, Gauge: 15 st/4 inches 5.5 mm (US 9) Yardage: 73 m (80 yards)
I had 10 skeins of New York, Fibre Content 47%  Cotton, 28% Polyamid-Nylon, 25% Polyester, Gauge: 16 st/4 inches, 5.5 mm (US9) Yardage: 77m.

I have four skeins left, and I don't think I can get 3/4 length sleeves out of the remainder.
But it's pretty!

Short sleeves it is then. Hey, it's hot in East Cupcake anyway, you don't need longer sleeves.

Very pretty, making me want to cast on NOW. I want that sweater too. And short sleeves sound good. Guess I'm going to have short sleeves too..
