here's my first mangy arm.
I purposely made it a narrower and it still fits! :cheering:

I'm sorry I've been insulting this yarn so much.
I think it looks a little bit better in a larger area.

if anyone looks, do you think if I knit a lace border in a slightly lighter yarn on the bottom, that would keep it from curling?
or would I have to use this yarn to make it work?

& I love the pattern. no seams, easy to change! yay!

Looks great! I love the color. The hourglass is one of my favorite sweaters; it's easy, quick, and best of all...no seaming. Great job!:thumbsup:

That looks wonderful on you, and it really fits! I also love the color.

That's going into my "to knit" list!!! And i like the olive colour... One of my personal favourites.

would you reknit the whole thing, or just try shorten it by 5-10 rows and leave it at that?

(in the first one, I'm slouching - as usual. but maybe a little more than usual. I'm a little perturbed about the blocking. in the second I'm standing straighter than I ever do. maybe all this nonsense will finally improve my posture. :chair:)

Unless you like the wide neckline, I think the only thing I'd advise is to take out the BO and knit a few more rows with decreases. I like longer sweaters myself, so the length looks fine.

I dont think it looks long- and I like the neckline the way it is!:cheering:
