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.
