Rival Sweater

I don't know about you, but in order to avoid spending money when I see something I want, I tell myself, "I could make that, I shouldn't buy it", even though I probably couldn't/won't.  It's the frugal Midwesterner in me.  A double-edged sword I must say!  While at my highest functioning eye/hand coordination I could maybe make a few of the things I say I could(/should), but the fact is I usually don't really want to/"get around to it".  Well this time I hope to gain a cool sweater and the satisfaction of not buying something because I made it, although I still had to buy the yarn which on sale was about half the cost of this American Apparel cable sweater (this usually never happens by the way).

Granny says "Always make a gauge swatch you! Tsk Tsk!"
