NaKniSweMo, recap...

I finished Katy on Friday, but I'm just getting around to posting. Of all of the pictures that I took, the only one that turned out was of the neckline...and, even that is hard to see. I'll experimenting with more pictures tomorrow.

Overall, I am happy with the way this project turned out. I love the color and look forward to watching it fade over the next few washings. The fit is definitely smaller than I thought it would be. At this point, the sweater fits perfectly. I won't be putting it in the dryer ever again for fear of it shrinking further.

This was the perfect choice for NaKniSweMo. Since the bulk of the sweater was in stockinette, it made for mindless knitting. Plus, the lace pattern was easy to memorize. I would have to say that the best thing about knitting this sweater in a month is that it helped motivate me to keep knitting. Instead of starting something new when I started to get bored, I kept slogging away to make sure I finished it in November.
