Here it is:

If you would kindly disregard my horrible learning experience as to dye lot importance, I would appreciate it! I made this using Lion Brand Wool Ease worsted weight in Blue Mist on size 8 addi turbos. Started Jan 18 and Finished seaming Feb 4. It's really not as tight as it looks, because it's not mine!! This was made for a friend's teenage daughter who is several inches smaller than me in every direction! I enjoyed knitting this one much more than the one I still haven't finished (Rowan Yorkshire Aran Tweed) and don't suspect I'll be finishing the other anytime soon. I might make one in wool ease for myself, though!!

I've had lots of fun watching everyone's progress and all the different choices in yarns and colors!! Thanks so much for setting up the continuation of the original KAL!!

Great job! Don't worry about the dye lot oops too much. It's still a fantastic gift.
