I really like the finished sweater - I was skeptical, but the fit is perfect. I think it's worth saving the pattern, just to copy the sizing chart on other projects! And I really love this yarn.
(when he snapped the shot, was I walking? dancing? voguing? not sure.)

The part of the pattern I decided not to use was the hemming - I know myself. The waiting a few weeks. And then the sewing would be horribly sloppy. And I'd have to do it a few times. And it would suck anyways. Much like my Miss Bea's cardigan for Zoe - have not managed to put the zipper in yet, and it's been about 4 months! (It won't fit till Fall, so I have time)

Instead, I did THIS at the collar and on the sleeves, a few rows of SS with the purl ridge for show and to keep them from rolling too far. .

The bottom is a plain SS hem. It does roll a little, but there's enough length so I don't end up showing any skin. Either way, I love it!

I didn't flash any stash on April 1, but I did go through my stash and am glad to say the yarn management has gotten pretty good around here. What used to be a bunch of baskets, piles on the futon and bags around the trunk now all fits IN the trunk! I've traded some yarn for books, knitted a few projects, bought a little less (really!) and have a big shopping bag for the next KS swap.

See how nice and tidy?
Only a few skeins in the basket.
Onto the Silk Garden!
And Anna, thanks - pom pom fizz is perfect!
