So this is the first thing I have done that has any real patterning to the fabric. Ive dont ribbed stuff, but this has some lacework on the hems at the bottom and the sleeves. Its also the first sweater (#5) that the front and back acutally ended up the same length :) I didnt have to ease any seams :)

This is only the second time Ive dont a knitting on neckline. I ended up picking up more stitches then called for becuase I could not get it to look even with the number of stitches called for. Might that be way the neck edge doesnt lay down quite as nicley as it should?

AND!!!!!!!! it fits. I dont have anyone to take a picture of me in it right now but trust me it fits nicely.

Modeling will come tonight, I think.

Itsa from Fashion-Plus Knits (I think thats the title) The book is a lesuire Arts/Lion Brand book thats all plus sized stuff. It called for Homespun but opted to change it becuase I loved the color so much too :)
