New Sweater, or Maybe a Robe

TAH-DA!!!!!!  I've had this done for a week or so now, just finally got some photos of it! This is the new sweater I made. The first 2 photos are me....yes me....before I decided to make it longer, and put pockets on it. It's basically 2 six sided granny squares, and I think I did 25 rows. I see them done on everyone's site for babies, and I never saw one done up for adults, so I did it. Why not, right?

Besides, I've got a large stash of variegated yarns I've been wanting to use up, and this was it. I did a row of every color, doubling only a couple of them.  Kind of gives it a mosiac look, ya think? LOL But, I've still got way to many skeins of variegated left, and I want to make another one of these, maybe keeping the next of shorter. Lining it will be even better! And they work up so fast.
                                                  And the backside.....

                                               Daughter modeling it :)
                                                   Little big for her.
                                    You can see the 2 large grannies I started with, and the 4 grannies I added to make it longer.



                                 I love it. I think it'll make a perfect robe! I've considered linging it with some cool fabric too....maybe.....one day :)

Very coloful and pretty! I made a Hexagon Shrug with a size M hook, and it worked up really fast. My daughter is modeling mine here:
