I’ve paid my dues –
Time after time –
I’ve done my sentence
But committed no crime –
And bad mistakes
I’ve made a few
I’ve had my share of sand kicked in my face –
But I’ve come through
Yes, I finished! In the nick of time!
Started: August 8th
Completed: August 22 9:57pm
Yarn: Elizabeth Lavold Classic AL, 7.5 skeins
Pattern: Opulent Raglan by Wendy Bernard
Needles: Size 6US & 5Us Harmony circular and dpns,
Notes: I am so happy with this sweater, I could sing!
We are the champions, my friends!
This sweater turned out perfectly! I did a few mods, the already mentioned waist shaping for one. I made this a more close fitting sweater than the pattern calls for – I think it supose to be more of tunic, but maybe that’s just me.
I changed up the bottom – I still did a hem, but split the front & back, so have a little bit nicer fit.
I decided against the sleeves – I think the original sleeves are cute, but not really something I would wear. I went with 3/4 length sleeves with an inch of ribbing that matches the neckline.
I managed to get a photo shoot outdoors – it’s not too awfully hot here and my neighbors weren’t out and about for once. Style accesseoires – my faveourite skirt (I would wear this everyday if I could – just a plain denim skirt I got at thrft store) and that fantastic necklace is one I bought from Amanda.
Sweater is still a bit warm to wear at the moment – I can’t wait until fall!
I’ve taken my bows
And my curtain calls –
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
