Grrr. This picture is a little blurry, but I’m lazy and angry at the moment. Of course I didn’t block a swatch of the lace or anything. That would have been the responsible thing to do. This ended up a bit longer than I wanted. I wanted it about 2 inches shorter on the body and the arms. I’m happy with the width. I’m going to sew on the buttons and think about it. I will either rip back or convince myself that I like it. I’m not sure which.
I wanted the sleeves a bit shorter so that I could potentially wear long sleeves under it occasionally, but at the length they are it looks a bit silly. I normally love long sweaters, but I was thinking this one should hit more at the top of the pants as the original does. I don’t love the creases at the armpit, but I don’t think that can be avoided as they seem to be present even in the original pattern. I don’t think that will bug me so much later. I wanted this to be done. Oh well. At least it won’t be that hard to fix.
