So, it turns out I'm completely in love with Elizabeth Zimmermann.  I *luckily* got 7 Skeins of malabrigo from someone de-stash and turned it into my favorite sweater ever. 

Usually, I have a really tough time adapting patterns to fit me right (they're usually wayyyy to big) but, I got this one right on the first try.  EZ does most of the math, all you really need to do is figure out the CO stitches.  Everything is easy as PI from there. 

It was my first time doing a knitted hem, and really like how proff-y it looks. 

you can read more about it on my blog @ Http://www.knitxcore.com

Wow, that is truly an amazing garment.  It looks like it took quite a bit of time to make!  BTW, I thought you might find it amusing that when I first saw the photos, I thought they were of Daniel Vosovic (from Project Runway).

That green is GORGEOUS! I am also a slave to EZ. She changed the way I looked at and thought about knitting.

"Stressed" is "desserts" spelled backwards.
