Woo Hoo!

She's done! And I am so pleased with the result; this will be a sweater I will wear a lot. I can even see making this pattern again, with something fancier, and I almost never think that.

As you can see, I made the 3/4 sleeve version, size 38, and I used up about 4 1/2 balls of Cascade 220. I was a little nervous at the end, since I probably should have gone up a needle size for the sleeves, but I blocked the hell out of them and they turned out just fine.

So thank you, Bonne Marie, for such a wonderful pattern (and so well written - extra smooch for that). And thanks to everyone for letting me watch you knit. It was especially motivating when I was frogging those first few inches for, let's say, the twenty-second time.

There are a few more details here, for those that are interested.
