It's done and I love it. This is the first thing I've knitted for myself apart from shawls that I'm really happy with.
I made various modifications to the pattern. Only a 2" neckband (I have a short neck), a 3x3 rib on the bottom and cuff. I think if I make this again I may do them both just slightly deeper.
Please excuse the no-makeup photos, I'm still not feeling well, but I wanted to get this photographed today, Rachel suggested the poses!
This took only 600 grams of yarn. It's turned very cool here now so I can see me wearing this often. I have cast on a sweater for Laurie, so hoping to make good inroads into that and have the one for Rufus cast on before next weekend, aran yarn so quick progress anticipated.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
