This little sweater just needs a button band. I'm pretty pleased with how my first attempt at fair isle turned out (although I admit it was a pretty simple pattern). As it happens, I'm not a big fan of doing button bands. But finishing this is part of my New Year's resolutions, so finish it I will!
Marvelous job, Marriah. The Anniversary Sweater is very nice it looks rather quietly simple, yet it still grabs the eye. The fair isle sweater is also pretty, the colors work well together on my monitor. What charity are you making it for?
Judge: Madame, either you will have to cease knitting or I will have to cease judging. Which shall it be?
Miss Marple: It helps me to concentrate, milord.
Judge: It does not help me, madame.
Miss Marple: Oh. Very well. (puts away knitting)
Judge: Thank you, Madame.
The lyf so short, the craft so long to lerne.

Both sweaters are gorgeous. I know what I'll be knitting MY husband for our next anniversary! :D
One suggestion I'd make if you do knit the Anniversary sweater--make the sleeves narrower at the cuffs. They flared out a bit for me, and I didn't like that too much. Other than that, it's a great pattern.
If at first you don't succeed....rip it and try again!
