Gleeful

Okay, so I promised these awhile ago and didn't deliver. The holidays were a whirlwind. That's my excuse. But here you go, the finished (finally) Glee!








Pattern: Glee by Zephyr Style
Yarn: Knit Picks Andean Treasure in Embers (6.5 balls)
Mods: Added waist shaping (still a little baggy), increased bust by an inch, knit extra inch of length, didn't change needles sizes for ribbing


Overall, my first sweater was a smashing success, don't you think? I'm very pleased with it. I started this in July and it took forever and a day to finish. Mostly, that was due to the sudden sock obsession and school.

On to the next sweater! I think I might start on Wicked, perhaps.

I have been reading your old post Jenn. I'm so glad that you found me. You have NOT been knitting just since this summer! You're sweater looks too fabulous. *wink*

you did a fab job on this! i originally saw it on Ravelry. Did you keep record of how you did the waist shaping? i just bought the yarn for this and i'd like to try to shape it, too.
