Something finished

Since this didn't get blogged yet I'm going to drop it here.

I finished my Liz I sweater. It's beautiful. I did have to rip back the top and shorten it so that it fit me, but it's a great fit now and I love it!



Prior to the adjustment it looked like this:



It's hard to see in this picture but the armhole starts under my bust about 5 inches down from my actual arm. It felt like I was 4 wearing my mother's clothes.

I really love Alice Starmore's designs. But they are always oversized for me. In many cases this is not a big deal. In this case, I think I'd like it better if it was a closer fit. However, not enough to make all the changes that would be necessary to adjust this pattern.
