so like i'm done yah ?

oh the hidden spell of the sweater never-to-be-finished is over!!
this took the wholeness of my winterbreak (i started exactly a month ago)
i used classic elite skye tweed in spruce green was is?
and yay i'm happy. maybe i'll put some sky blue ribbons into it (i'm a fan of ribbons)

intentional changes made from pattern:
i did make it longer by 1/2 inch for the body and i did short-row shaping for 3 needle bind-off at the shoulders, i also did a three needle bind-off for the top of the hoodie b/c i'm lazy? (eh, dunno if it's supposed to be done, ohwell. i did add a row to compensate)

un-intentional changes: so i actually misinterpreted something on the decreasing for the sleeve-cap, and didn't notice until i did it right on the second sleeve, so eh just kept it, it's only 2 rows that are missing

also: this sweater does run on the small side for the arms...beware? try it out? i dunno. and i thought omg! the front-sides are so small!! but then you add that edging and it finishes it off...could totally add button (though doesn't seem so on the pic)

so yah... first sweater!!! i think before this i made the earflap beanie in the same issue of knitscene, and before that i made like a scarf? this is a big step! one more pic is on my blog (marywary on the sidebar), and ugh this is an awful pic of me b/c i'm sick!

good luck to those working on it!!

Its beautiful - I can't wait to be finished when I look at other FOs.

I'm worrying about the size too - I'm on the front panels, but your comment puts my mind at ease :)

Hopefully the sleeves will be OK.
