Great accomplishment.
Olha: I was just thinking today that eventually you WILL make something that you can wear. See, it works like this: One day your daughter will wear the same size sweater as you do, so when you make HER a sweater, YOU can wear it, too! Even if you have to steal it out of her closet while she's not looking!!

One thing I was bummed about is that I saw some of the more recent Sylvis have a different cuff variation - they used a variation with leaves that look really sharp. Here is one lady's - her Rav name is lux-solis. It's hard to see in the red; I know I saw a few others like it. I would have loved those cuffs! But I love my Sylvi anyway!

Now if we could just get a BRIEF cold snap down here in Los Angeles so I could wear her!
Having grown up in Los Angeles (and it still 'home' in my heart) you just might have to make a trip to Big Bear. Actually, I prefer the cuffs of your sleeves, and mine, to what I checked out on Rav with lux-soilis. The leaves are nice, but would not want to hook my thumb through the bottom. Thanks for the encouragement to finish mine. I am not slim, anymore that is, like you and somehow wonder if I would look like the side of a fire truck with etched-on flowers since I picked red yarn.

Wanda do you have a Ravelry account with photos of your Sylvi? I don't believe I've seen it but would love to!
I'm Laikabear on Ravelry, too!
