I could have finished in February if I had really tried, but I didn't. Instead, I knit the last 3 rounds of sleeve number two and then cast off on March 1st. I blocked it right away and finally, about a week after it had dried, bought some buttons to finish it off. I have worn it three times and I love how it fits. I was worried that I made it too small, but kept reminding myself that garter stitch grows and it would be fine. It's more than fine. It's perfect. What I do not love is how the Malabrigo is starting to pill. I was warned, but I went ahead anyhow. That's okay. I'll deal.
Pattern: February Lady Sweater by Pamela Wynne
Size: XS – 37.5"
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Forest, 5 skeins (with most of the 5th skein unused)
Needles: Size 7
Modifications: I made the bottom band and arm bands wider to match the width of the button band. That's all.
And yes, that is my bathroom, re-painted. Still missing outlet covers, though. Why rush these things? I'll get to that someday.
