Just grafted up the hood, and we're calling this girl done. She still needs a bath and block, but I'm smiling.

My only complaint about the pattern I've mentioned before. The sleeve depth is just too narrow. I used 13 yarn overs, more than double on the sleeve in order to get the sleeve to have enough ease. I don't have skinny sticks for arms, I expect most of you out there are more like me.

A few more comments on my blog.

Congrats! Looks perfect! From the picture, it looks to me like we're using a similar color - pale green.

Congratulations! It looks great. I'll keep the sleeve issue in mind should I ever get to the sleeves.

It's great! I'd love to see more pics. Now I'm paranoid about the sleeves being too small. We'll see.
