Finished!


I've finished my sweater! I'm pretty happy with it overall, but my sleeves came out really long and big (I didn't do any mods to the sleeves.) Something to watch out for those of you knitting now! I loved the lace pattern, and I think I'm going to miss making this sweater! More on my blog!

This is a beautiful sweater! That color is gorgeous.

You may have to do what I did with Starsky and shorten the sleeves. Mine were way too long and I undid the caston, ripped out, and then re-ribbed. It looks great and the only hard part was frogging backwards. I'm glad I did it, because I was very uncomfortable with the long sleeves and would never have worn it.

Looks great! The funny thing is I keep thinking mine is going to end up too small...but then I haven't started the sleeves yet...

So pretty! It looks great.

The neckline seems really open, which I wasn't expecting -- I might have to make a wider band for mine.

Luckily (ha!) I have fat arms, but I will be watching the sleeve length.
