Pattern:  Lady February Sweater
Yarn:  Elsebeth Lavold Classic Al
Size:  Smallest size modified.

My first sucessful sweater!  I cast on in June, and though this is a pretty fast knit, but I was delayed by having to order more yarn.  I did make some minor modifications.  The smallest bust size was a few inches too large.  I completely removed the eyelet increases to adjust for a 32" bust.  I also made long sleeves.  I love three-quarter sleeves, but if I'm making a sweater out of a warm fiber than I might as well make it long sleeved.

I am very pleased with the results.  It fits well, and is very lightweight and warm.  I would highly recommend this pattern.  Well written and suprisingly easy.

Pretty Buttons!
 
 



Some more pictures





I hope the pictures acurately show the sweater.  I had no one model the sweater, so I had to play the role of model and photographer.

More details on my blog and on ravelry.
