My new skinny bolero

Yay me! I have officially lost 30 1/2 pounds! Now to celebrate my new-found figure, I made myself the Short 'n Sweet Bolero from SnB The Happy Hooker. I finally feel comfortable making myself more than shawls to wear. I already have the yarn for another cardigan. I feel great, I have lots of energy, I exercise regularly, I'm eating healthily-- and I get to make myself sweaters in a smaller size-- I'm definitely liking this!

As for the sweater-- I used Lion Glitterspun and an I hook. I think I will add a hook and eye closure just under the bust. It's really hard to see the texture the fpdc and bpdc give the shells in black yarn. I think I'd like to make this again in a lighter color to show off the stitches
