The First FO of 2008

I'm not sure why it took me so long to complete this sweater. The body knit up really quick. The sleeves however took forever. It could be that I kept forgetting which row of the lace pattern I was on. Not something I could knit while I was tired but it still worked for TV knitting.

Pattern: Cherie Amour
Source: Knitty
Size: Small
Yarn: Malabrigo worsted
Color: 610 Red Mahogany
Quantity: 3 hanks with a little left over
Modifications: None
What I would do differently: Knit a couple extra
rows for the bust. I feel that the ribbing comes
up a little high.

I am hoping that the sweater will stretch a little so that the bust fits better. Trust me I am not busty by any means. I would like to make this again maybe with another yarn so I could wear it during the summer months.

Beautiful. I'm trying to decide what size to knit, but your sweater has convinced me to definitely do this!
