Finished - Tempting in Moss


I finished this last night! I'm really pleased with the fit. Of course that's because I frogged the Alpha version (when I was a good 6 or 7 inches into it) when I miscalculated the gauge for this sweater. Do you think I'll ever knit something that I don't have to rip apart halfway through it because I can't measure my gauge swatch properly?! Although in all fairness I wasn't sure how much to stretch the gauge swatch because of the ribbing. I'm still not sure about that ribbon, that just might change yet.

Anyway I was knitting up a storm all week to get this done to wear to a function tonight. Now I can get moving on the Christmas knitting I'm SUPPOSED to be doing. {looking guiltily at the little progress bar on the side} But I did add some more past fo's to the Gallery. That erases a little of the guilt.

Your Tempting fits so well and I love the color combo. It's sooo worth it (in the end!!) to rip out and do it again when it's not just right, isn't it?

It's perfect just as it is! And I'm not usually a ribbon girl, but it's the perfect little touch to make it SO classy.

Divine fit, btw - it's very flattering!

Actually, I like your ribbon best out of all the incarnations of this pattern that I have seen. Your ribbon is not as wide as some of the others, and I think I really dig that. Nice job.
