    Onde looks SO comfy!

    Perfect sweater for the first day of fall-especially with the very cool nights/early mornings but spectacular sunny days the Midwest is experiencing right now.

    Nice sweater! Wish we were sisters and I could borrow some goodies from your closet!

    Was just reading your notes about weddings….what the heck is a chicken dance? I’m from Chicagoland and I’ve never heard of it…

    love you!

  10. So pretty! Now that would look lovely with some warm Winter white pants.

    Love it! And thanks so much for the fab snap tape instructions!

  18. Becky says:

    WOW! My eyes popped out of their sockets when the picture showed up on my screen. Simply smashing. It’s so beautiful on you! This jacket seemed to just hang like a baggy jacket on the model in the mag, but on you it is the perfect fit and looks so sleek and chic. Brava, Miss B-M!

  19. froggy says:

    beautiful sweater and what a wonderful pic.

  20. Bonne Marie says:

    Thank you all so very MUCH!

    I’m diggin’ this design – it is actually too warm right now in Chicago to wear it! I can’t wait to road test it –

    I’ve wanted a *long* simple cardigan like this for quite awhile and just love the way the OMBRE effect turned out…
