I love that top.  The colors look so pretty on you.  I know you aren't super thrilled with the neckline but maybe you can take out a row or two.

the neck is where i cast on.  can i frog from the co edge?  the general consensus at ravelry was no, but but i thought it i threw in a lifeline, then cut it of and knit it up.  but that's kinda scary considering all the hours i put into it.  i've been wearing it the last couple days (yes, you read that right Wink ) and i think i may just live with it.

an easy way to make the neckline look bigger at least could be running a dark green (or some other darker color) around the base of the ribbing you had.  It would also be nice to have a similar effect at the empire waistline.  at least i like the ribbons there. 

in any case i'm jealous.  now i feel the need to check your blog for inspiration.

love it!  I would leave the neckline on this one, may be make the next one a little lower as suggested.  A ribbon under the bustline would also dress it up.  I want one!

Thanks all.  after wearing it a half dozen times, I am going to just leave it and knit the next one differently.  I'm working on writing up the pattern (I didn't take very good notes Sad ) and will let you all know when it up.
