Hooray! Week 6, the grand finale and I was able to finish on Wednesday, block it on Thursday, and photograph it today :) Once we were into week 6 and I could finally pick up my knitting again (I tell you, it's not been easy recovering from this stomach flu, it was a full week before I woke up feeling okay), there was no stopping me on that last sleeve.
I am so happy with my finished pullover! It fits perfectly, with two inches of negative ease, just the way I wanted it to now that we are ready to shed our winter coats for Spring. I knit the 32 (I am a size 34 bust) and followed the instructions to a T with the exception of the lengthwise measurements... I realized once I had begun the hip shaping that following the measurements for the size 34 instead, placed the shaping right where it needed to be. I didn't add any length to the body because I knew that it would grow after blocking and grow it did, I gained an extra 3 inches of body length which means it sits perfectly at my belt line.
Austen, our lovely knit along host, has also finished her pullover right on time and it looks amazing! So hop on over to the Canadian Living craft blog and check it out. Be sure to leave a comment as she has some prizes up her sleeve!
