Holy shit! I haven’t blocked it, but I will this afternoon. I should have blocked it yesterday when it was warm and sunny and it could just chill in the sun and come out the perfect size. It is basically the perfect size now. The sleeves are a little big; I’m hoping that after blocking it they will go down a little. I’m going to block them longer so that they skinny up.
I’ve got my dress form as close as possible to my own measurements right now, and the shoulders look good, the boobs look good, the front stripe of ribbing looks good. Basically, I’m in love.
I just keep staring at it. It doesn’t even look hand knit. I’m kind of in shock right now!
Ok I’ll block it and then post pictures of me wearing it. I’ll stop gushing.
In the mean time I’m decompressing with some basic toe up socks. I found this kind of ridiculous pattern for toe up socks that so far is more silly and unnecessarily mathematical than I’d like to be dealing with. But, it is certainly nice to be just knitting and not k1p1 ribbing. And toe up socks are fun! I’m converting. Of course, I haven’t gotten to the heel yet.
