FO - February Lady Sweater
Ok, I am finally blocking this thing! Really, I should have been finished waaayy back. I still have to get my fake buttons, as I'm planning on have snap closures. If this doesn't fit me, I'll be searching someone to give this to.
Yarn: BMFA Woobu (wool/bamboo) Raven "Corbie" (black,green & blue) -the bamboo changes the saturation of color to a silvery grey with the green and blue. Used almost 2 skeins (each was 620 yards).
Size: XL
Modifications: ribbed collar and bands, knit yoke instead of garter, alternated gull lace with a panel of stockinette stitch and longer sleeves (decreased in the under-arm area by 7 stitches).
The second pic is my initial swatch which shows the colors more accurately.

Very nice job!! I like your mods, I'm not a huge fan of garter stitch (other than it being easy to do) and like the stockinette stitch panels (less bulk). I've considered another FLS and if I do it'll be with your mods!
