8/24/12 - Finished! I love it and it fits me perfectly. I still don’t like taking photos, but at 106 pounds down so far I don’t mind as much. I just wish I’d made the sleeves a little longer. I had enough yarn but wasn’t sure I would. Ended up with 2 1/2 skeins left. Oh well, I still love it.
8/19/12 - Decided to get this finished as I am losing weight and should be able to wear it once it’s done. I only need to knit about 4 more inches in ribbing at the bottom and then I can pick up stitches for the band. I’ve decided to go no button.

Next time I would work the increase stitches differently so there would be no holes. I’m also not crazy about the increases in the ribbed sections, but if they weren’t there it wouldn’t flare like it needs to.
