6/25/11 - I love the finished sweater in general. The only thing I might adjust for this version (drapey yarn) is to remove those extra repeats on the front and back b/c the neckline really stretches out as I wear it. Graceful - even sexy - but not as carefree as I’d like.
The mods will be detailed on my blog, but the general gist was about 1/2 inch extra length in the front with bust shaping, waist shaping added in classic decrease/increase pairs at either side of the side “seams” to go from about 36 at the underarm, to around 34 or so around the waist.
It was a great “tv” knit once I cleared the lace pattern area.
The yarn is so nice and soft! I think it’s going to be a super top layer right on through the winter!

6/8/11 - I tried it on after adding bust shaping and waist shaping to the body - I love it! Can’t wait to complete the sleeves, which are not ridiculously large on account of the gauge change.

I’m working this at a finer gauge and therefore added 24 sts. at cast on - 12 in front, 12 in back. I’m hoping that this will actually balance out the generous sleeves a bit better. We’ll see!
