What a perfect fit! I finished mine but truthfully I am ready to frog it because it doesn't feel right when I am wearing it. I mean, you shouldn't be aware of something of something your wearing, right?

Mimi, mine fits well but I think I know what you mean about how it fits. First of all there is a bit of bunchiness under the arms which is a side effect of raglan shaping. I'm not used to the sleeve length, as I have nothing else like that, and the sleeves are wide. When I wore it I kept feeling like it was "big" but when I looked in the mirror it looked okay. I think I just have to get used to it.

Oooo, I love everything about this sweater...the color, the lace, the neckline, the 3/4 sleeves, the partial button closure at the top, and the fit. It looks great on you. Very nice! And it looks like spring where you are. Can't wait. We are having an unseasonably cold snap right now, but spring is on the way. Daffodils in Oregon are a good sign.
