'Tisn't the season ...


... to be wearing something like this. It's going to be months before it's cold enough here to get any use out of it; but at last The Wool That Will Not Die has become something.


I'm so happy to have finally learned that I need waist shaping and then all will be well.

Pattern: Jodi Green's Gatsby Girl Pullover from Interweave Knits Fall '06.
Mods: left off the button band at the neck, and just sewed it shut. The neck is wide enough without it, and I couldn't get it looking neat (perhaps because I wasn't bothered enough to find the correct size crochet hook).
