Got that summer feelin'... sort of

I got inspired by the change in weather, so I plan to start this. I haven't had much luck with subsituting their yarn, hopefully this time it will work out. I got some cotton yarn at Elann to try my luck. Not that I'll be wearing this to a beach any time soon. It looks like a lot of fun to make. Also, I'm considering this. I have some mohair/acrylic purchased a while back, and if it swatches correctly I'll do it. Probably won't make it as long as it is shown... wait a minute, is it maternity wear? Regardless, I'll see how the yarn swatches.
