FO: Sylvi
I started Sylvi in the fall of 2008. In early 2009, the project stalled because I wanted to make some modifications and wasn't sure how to do them. I had finished the body and sleeves, and put the pieces in storage.

I wanted to omit the hood and make a collar, but I wasn't sure what type of collar I wanted. I wanted to put onseam pockets in, but I wasn't sure how exactly to do it. And I wanted to sew in a lining, but I don't really sew AT ALL, and I don't have a machine.

So Sylvi sat until 3 weeks ago, when I resolved to finish or frog all 8 of my LONG TIME UFOs (I'm at 4 finished so far!). I decided to just go with the pattern. I sewed her up, knitted the hood, and what do you know, I love Sylvi!

I am still a little worried about this heavy knit growing, but... for now she is perfect.

I got the buttons from Etsy. I like that they are handmade, too!

We haven't had weather to wear Sylvi yet, but I'm hopeful late January and February will bring me an excuse.

ArtLady, I hope you see this, because YOU were a HUGE help to me during our KAL for Sylvi.

Now for some photos. Please excuse my Doberman, Darcy. She thinks she needs to be in every photo.
