I've finished mine, and it looks great! I knit it in Cleckheaton Country 100% merino (a fairly generic yarn, but I live in a small town and yarn varieties are extremely limited). It's blocking right now, but when it's dry (dry, you sucker, dry!) I'll have a picture to post!

I am going to be a latecomer to this KAL but wanted to tell Tamantha one thing: www.knitpicks.com!! (Unless the "small town" you're referring to is not in the US, that is.)

Sadly, the small town I live in is not in the US. It's in Australia. Thanks for the link, anyway!

I'm fairly happy with how it turned out anyway (despite my god-awful photo there). Duckie, I am pretty bosomy, and it looks fine. When you block it, just pull the front down a bit longer than the back, and it sits well.

Argh, can't stop looking at that photo of myself. If a better one comes out of this wedding, I am replacing that picture, stat.

Baigneuse, what a great job!  What yarn did you use?  I so want to make this, but can't decide on what yarn to use, or what color!

Thanks! The one I used is a JoAnn yarn from their Sensations Bellezza Collection called "Dolcetto" in pink. It was inexpensive and really soft and fluffy. I got 2 skeins for $8 and didn't even use them all up for this project.

Thank you for the compliment. I love the pattern.

That creepy neighbor of mine has the buisness end of a knitting needle with his name on it if he doesn't cut it out.
