I have to give it up to the Purl Bee - they have the easiest patterns, with very well written instructions. This is the Sullivan Street Bolero and it took less than a week to make! It looks a bit awkward with a long sleeve shirt - I am still tinkering with how to pair it with the right clothes, in order to wear it in a not so crazy-knitting-lady way. Only time will tell with this one, but it's exciting nonetheless. This is a great way to learn how to pick up stitches as it is a relatively quick project, and thus non-threatening. I know I was nervous to pick up stitches for something like a sweater - you put in all that work, and it might all be for naught, because there is always the possibility of messing up with the neck and ruining it all! No such worries.
