Laverne 2

Having given away the first Laverne to my adorable sweater model, colleague and friend Lorrie D., I decided I wanted one for myself. So I made a white-on-white version, which you can see here. This one uses the modification provided in the pattern for longer short sleeves (the original Laverne has cap sleeves) and it also uses the same color for the body and ribbed trim.

I wore it this week and discovered two things: 1) Mohair REALLY keeps you warm, and 2) Fuzzy sweaters totally make your boobs look bigger. I guess that second one counts as more of a RE-discovery, though. Here's to ya, Jane Russell!
