Sweater Girls

With all my SPT action, I know most of you are probably tired of looking at my mug, but I did want to post a photo of my finished FEFI. For the knit nerds out there, here are the specs:

Pattern: Fairly Easy Fair Isle from Stitch 'N' Bitch Nation
Size: S
Yarn: Lamb's Pride Bulky in Chocolate Souffle, Lotus Pink, Victorian Pink and Oatmeal
Needle: U.S. 11

It's not closed because I still can't find my button box (still in a moving box somewhere, I hope) and I haven't been able to make it down to a fabric store. But, you get the idea. I'm incredibly satisfied with this sweater -- I was afraid that it was going to be too shlubby, but it fits pretty nicely, especially for something knit out of bulky yarn. I did adjust the neck line a little, skipping some of the final garter rows. I'm looking forward to wearing it out on the patio on the days that it's really too cold to barbeque, but we do it anyway because we're so excited to see spring.
