Hey you guys, I finally picked up my Mariah sweater and finished her. Yeah, I started this MONTHS ago and then let it sit allllll summer. But the weather is cooling down now, so I need more wooly goodness. See my blog for more photos and notes about the pattern, etc.

That's just great!  Oh, it's sooo beautiful!  Have you been knitting for years?

Wow, gorgeous. Your zipper looks SO much better than my mariah's zipper did (it's posted somewhere on this board, if you're curious)... genious idea to use the i-cord edging. And congrats on finishing! YOu did a great job.

Anyone on Ravelry? My username is Caitlism, friend me!

That look great, and fits wonderfully!

i've been thinking of trying this pattern, but the chest measurment for the small is 37 inches! that seems like it might be a bit large for my 32 inch chest.  Undecided (i'm horrible at modifying patterns, i always get so confused.)

Hey, everyone! Thanks for your kind comments! I think this sweater turned out pretty welll, too. It's so cozy, I didn't take it off after my little photo shoot and wore it all evening. Cozy and warm, but not big and bulky.

No, I definitely haven't been knitting for years. I've been knitting for almost a year and a half. I didn't think this sweater was all that hard. I usually try to add some new skill to my repertoire with every project and that way nothing is too daunting. Well. Usually.  Wink

Thanks for the comments about my zipper. It wasn't hard to put in (I did it by hand), it just took forever because I stitched it in with little tiny stitches so it would be nice and sturdy.

Mirage, I think the author of the pattern created a 33" size later. You might go check at Knitty.com or look at the yahoo knit-along group where it would have been posted.
