My Ariann is here!
First, I would like to thank Bonne Marie and you all for your encouragement to me!
Even though I've tried hard to pay attention to all of the details until every thing is done, I really enjoyed this project. She turns out well!
I once started all the body part over again. It was sad... I felt a setback rising often but I really wanted to complete this sweater so I could escape from giving up this project somehow...
The point I attentively worked was to adjust the size to one that I needed. It was quite hard to me. I blocked her carefully but I'm not sure that this sweater fits me nicely yet.
This weekend was spent working on Ariann. This project takes a very long time. It didn't work as planned. Yes, I put it aside for a while several times and re-work it later when I'm less frustrated with the project because I've busied myself in working. But I enjoyed working on Ariann so much. I've learnt a lot from this pattern.
The only change to the pattern I made to fit my taste and body was the length of body and needle size. I knit the pattern exactly as written, so I ended up with a shorter version. It's just about perfect sweater length for me.
It's been already high temperature here in California in the daytime.. Ariann seems to miss a golden opportunity for a debut.
