FO Alert


I'm so freaking excited to show you this sweater. I can't believe it's done. Well, um, almost done. I'm hiding the dangling ends to take the picture, plus I think I'll reinforce the neck line so it stays put a little better.

I need to send out a big thank you to my friend Lisa who apparently reads the blog. The past two times I've seen her she's asked, "So what's up with that asymmetrical thing?" She spurred me on to get to pieced it together today. I left it neglected in my closet for too long fearing that it wouldn't fit. Alas, I'm happy with the fit, but I have to replace the shiny white bra that I'm wearing in the pic with something more appropriate.

Here are some specs: Corrugated Asymmetrical V-Neck by Teva Durham knit in Karabella Aurora Bulky in Eggplant color on size 10 1/2 needles.
