This is a sadly washed-out picture but I had to post and profusely thank everyone who posted on this KAL. I made this sweater in about a month, off and on, in August and September. It's my first knitted garment! Until this sweater I'd only made scarves and other square things. I pored voraciously over this knitalong and took copious notes about the shaping and the sizing, and THANK GOD it worked!!! I didn't have to frog back at all! The arms are a wee bit bigger around than I'd like, but they're certainly not bad, and the sweater body fits perfectly.
Really, I can't thank you all enough for all your notes. I feel like I got to avoid a lot of the problems some of you experienced, thanks to your chronicling of the problems you had! I added a lot of waist and hip shaping that I wouldn't have considered otherwise. I've worn it to work several times and it just successfully had its first washing and drying experience.
Hooray for overdue Green Gables!
