I did it
I finished it

MMMMMMalabrigo Pollen
largest size in pattern
knit on size 10.5 and 8 instead of (6 and 9 as the pattern dictates)
I also knit the arms first, and although I decreased at a rate of every 4th round instead of every 3rd, and the arms still came out short, and I had to frog back to a safety line, and knit 2 more inches, with 2 more decreases in it (now the end of the sleeves is a little snug around my hands, but not around my wrists)
the body was supposed to stop at 24" I stopped mine at 26.5" before I did the curled edge
I also did 9 rows at each edge, not just 6, and I bound off with the needle size I knit the rest with

it (Obviously) fits, even ME
the woman at the Dentists office said "My Goodness, that is a BIG sweater" I told her "I am a BIG woman, I need it"

Now I M done, and I M SO proud

I have never intended to ever knit myself a sweater. I don't generally wear them. I'm quite well endowed, and always feel overly conspicuous in them, but I gotta say, that sweater may just change my mind! I love it! :heart:

It looks great on you, too. :D

Hi'ya ECB! :waving:

And well you should be proud! It is a beautiful color with your creamy skin and blonde (strawberry blonde?) hair, and the design is very flattering on you. Simple lines, gorgeous color! KUDOS to you! :thumbsup:
