February Fitted Pullover in March

Finally, I finished my February Fitted Pullover.  I started this back in November for NaKniSweMo, and when I realized that I wouldn't finish in November, I just got really lax with it.  Lax to the point where it sat dormant for a while.  All I had left to do was seam the sleeves to the body, and finish the collar. Sheesh! 

So, I decided to finish it and actually wear it, before it got too hot outside to wear it.  Spring seems to have finally sprung.... at least this past week.  So, I grabbed on to the fear of not being able to wear it, and conquered it.

Here I am, clipping the pieces together, and seaming the sleeves.

Here is the completed sweater that I wore to work on Friday.

The Yarn is Malabrigo Silky Merino in "Amoroso", size 7 needles.
I didn't hesitate to cast on something new once the needle was free.  I went to La Casita on Friday evening with some really great knitting friends of mine.  I casted on yet another Sexy Vesty. We had such a blast.  La Casita has quickly become my favorite yarn shop.

February Fitted looks so cute! I think you should take a couple more pictures with a different color shirt on underneath so we can see the stitch pattern better. You are quickly becoming the FO queen.

Okay, I know this is an old post, but I wanted to make a comment (or two) anyway. :)

First - what a great idea to use hair clips for clippies! I have wanted to buy those fancy knitting ones, but that is a much better idea! Very cool!

Second - I am here because I am knitting that sweater right now and wanted to see yours. I want to make my sleeves long like that, too. Yours turned out beautiful. I love the amorosa color (I used it to make the Wispy Cardi last year). Gotta love Malabrigo! :)

Have a lovely day. :)
