All done!


If you've got a keen eye, you'll notice the mistake on the back. But I couldn't be bothered to fix it!

It fits great, except the armholes are a little tight.

(and yes, I really am that white)

Beautiful!  Now I know for certain I need to do another in a solid color!  It really brings out the lace pattern.

If it lives in the water or flies in the air, I'm in love with it. In New Zealand I saw a flying fish and almost wet myself.

April, I stared at the photo for several minutes trying to spot your mistake but I couldn't find it (it's like a Where's Waldo for knitters).

Anyway, I got stalled on the first sleeve-- I hate making sleeves!-- but your lovely finished sweater has motivated me to get back on track.

The sleeves is where I definitely began to lose steam so I really had to push myself to finish it up. April_Cocaine, your sweater looks fabulous on you and I can't see any mistakes. I can't wait to see some more FOs.  Smiley

I'm still working on the second sleeve but I wanted to get an idea of how the sweater would look with the sleeves attached. So I pinned the finished sleeve to the body and took some pictures.

I'm relatively new here so Craftster won't let me post pics yet. Head over to my blog to check them out:

I'm just wondering if anyone noticed that the bottom lace looks longer in the picture then when I knit it.  I'm 6', but I have a short torso, so I thought it would even out but now I'm a little bit concerned.

I'm stuck on the darn ribbing. My gauge is so tight for that it hurts my hands. Looks pretty though. Ugh.

I decided to cast on for this last night. I am using some wool ease from my stash that I had planned on making a sweater for my little brother with but I decided that I should use a different yarn for that. So since I'm stuck with this wool ease and I am not sure how much I am going to like Cherie amour on me I am using this yarn. If I finish and absolutely love it than I might make it in a nicer yarn.

I am knitting on size 10's and making the size medium to make up for the difference in gauge.

I had an epiphany about the sizing of this sweater last night, after finishing the ribbing section and realizing that the small is going to be... really tight on me.

Maybe I'm just slow on the uptake, and maybe I have this all wrong, but:

I'd suggest you choose which size to make by considering your underbust measurement and cup size as well as your bust measurement.  You see, I am making the small because my bust is 34 inches.  The thing is, I'm only an A-cup which means that my underbust is a lot bigger (I'm pretty sure) than someone who is a 34C or 34D.  Maybe I should have made the medium so the ribbing section would fit me a bit better.  Conversely, someone who has a larger chest than the model shown should possibly consider making a size smaller than recommended--your underbust is proportionally smaller than the pattern is sized for, so the ribbing will be loose and you won't get that nice waistline effect.

What do ya think?  Am I way out in left field?
