Take 2 !! ... this time from the top

I just couldn't leave it alone!...after much pondering, I decided that I still wanted to make a random striped jumper in this yarn. I really didn't like the way it was turning out when I started it bottom up, so switched tactics, and started it top down...and so far (please,please..fingers crossed!)...I really like it.
I took the neck measurement off a sweater that I made a couple of years back, and just did a basic
top down raglan from there.




....I left the original sweater on the bed instead of neatly putting it away...my mistake!..the next time I went in there, it was being worn by an extremely smart stuffed dog..(well certainly smart enough to dress himself anyway!!!..wonder if he had any help?!)

And what a smart little stuffed dog, he must have gotten chilly! :D

The sweater is coming along great! I really love those colours together! I haven't tried top down sweaters yet, but it's something I have on my "to try" list.
