FO Friday: Chase Those Chills

With a few weeks left before the official KAL end date, my Chill Chaser is complete! Over the weekend, I wove in the ends; on Monday night, I sewed the sleeves onto the body. On Tuesday, I blocked it out, but it wasn't totally dry until yesterday. Last night, I sewed on the buttons...which means I wasn't able to get photos taken of the totally-finished sweater til this morning, which is why this post is a little later than usual.
As you can see, it fits me perfectly. I used the same colors of Spud & ChloĆ« Sweater as pictured in the pattern photo, Manatee & Turtle. I'm knitting it as part of the Chill Chaser KAL which is happening here on Ravelry - and if you'd like to participate by knitting a child-size version of the sweater, it's not too late to join in, since the KAL ends on October 31. 
Check out those awesome robot buttons - do they look familiar? I used them earlier this year on a friend's baby sweater, and I've been obsessed with them ever since. I was able to special-order the size I needed from Fastenation Studio since I needed something smaller than what was currently available on the website. They arrived in less than a week, and there were even two extra robot buttons included with my order! 
I am totally in love with this project - I think it might be one of my favorite and best-fitting sweaters to date. I look forward to keeping the chills at bay all winter long!
