10th time is the charm!

Who says persistence doesn't pay off? After a hellish time getting this thing started - lace problems, too big, too small (no fault of the pattern, just my inattention!) - I finally completed my Grape Gable. (I kid you not - ten cast-ons and five complete frogs!!)

Same mods as most other folks here - more waist decreases and more hip increases. But after all this, I'm not a fan of the colour! I don't know what possessed me to choose it - it's lovely and all but not a colour I ever wear! I was initially going to do a green apple or lime or avocado colour (which I love love love), so don't ask me how I ended up with Berry (Cotton Fleece).

So the next mod? I'm dying it black! Stay tuned for that experiment!!

It's too bad you don't like it because I think that color actually looks really great on you!

I'm glad that you stuck with the sweater. I ripped out the lace several times as well. I am biased because purple is my favorite color but I think the purple looks great on you. However, I think it will be pretty sexy in black.

You deserve a prize for perserverance!!! That does look good on you! But, if black is what you prefer, go for it and let us know! Great job!
