You should be in love...it's gorgeous!!! Smiley
I've been dying to know before I attempt this- Does it feel weird when you wear it? The fit is just so different.

Nope it feels perfect.  It actually fits like any other cardigan, especially since the fit depends on the positioning of the buttons mostly.

Yours is beautiful! I really need to finish mine. When you say it fits well, do you mean it is fitted? I've been wondering about that for awhile, and it's one of the reasons mine has stalled... I can't wear a jacket without waist shaping. Though I know I could just add my own, if there isn't.

Oh that's beautiful!  Did you modify the pattern at all?  I love the way it looks and wanted to knit it, but was also not sure about the shaping.  It was hard to tell from the picture in IK if the shoulders/arms  were well-designed.  I'm so happy to hear that it is a good design.  That will be my first after-the-Christmas-gifts-are-done  project for myself!

I love it, too! Actually, the yarn I ordered for this project from ebay is on the way here..I'll start working on it as soon as I get the yarn.
BTW, some people who knitted this said that the back bodice is shorter than the front bodice when they just followed the pattern. Did it ever happened to you? I was going to knit the front first and count the rows and match the numbers rows of the back. What do you think about that?
