Revealing Something Red

This sweater has been finished for a few weeks, but I never got around to sewing the button on. (I know, one button! How hard can that be?!?) Then I had to wait a while to get The Brain to take pictures. But here it is: my Something Red!

Pattern: Something Red, by Wendy Bernard

Yarn: Cascade 220

Size: 35"

Needles: Knit Picks circs, size 9

Mods: None. I just knit as written, making adjustments in length to fit my tall frame.

This fits perfectly over a t-shirt, and I have already worn it running errands a couple of times. It's the perfect casual sweater to have for those slightly chilly evenings here in SoCal! :)

It looks perfect! (of course). I really like how the shoulder decreasing has the YOs in it. Very nice.

gorgeous! one of these days i'm going to stop being such a miser and buy that pattern.
and steeking--scary! great job, i don't think steeking would ever have occurred to me in that situation--i'd just be curled up in a little ball crying about my screwed up knitting. ;)

It's gorgeous! You did a great job. It's funny how the little finishing details end up taking forever, isn't it!
