The Ubiquitous February Lady Sweater

I made one:

I love it. At first, I was a little iffy on the yarn because it was very splitty and fuzzy. After blocking it and giving it a good talkin' to with the sweater shaver, I think it is really nice. I love the colors!

Changes: I made the sleeves and body a bit shorter than suggested. I did not make any buttonholes in the sweater. As an afterthought, I did one toggle button at the apex using an attached icord so it looks neat and tidy. :) To make it a bit more fitted, I decided not to cast on the 7 stitches under the armpits. And there you have it: a FLS a la Sugarsticks!

This sweater only took one skein of the yarn used (Plymouth Mushishi in Oceanic colorway). I still have a full skein leftover! I am thinking that I will double it and make another Sideways Grande Cloche, only this time for ME!!!!

PS: Stitches is in TWO DAYS!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice work. Did you change the needle size or use an 8 as is in the original pattern. Thanks.
