On the cusp of summer


 I finished the jumper just before the beautiful warm weather began. I'm really happy with the fit and the shaping. The only thing is, it has quite a wide boatneck, so I'm not sure what I'm going to wear it with. When I looked back at the pictures from Knitscene , after I finished this, I noticed the model has incredibly narrow shoulders, which she is holding in a hunched position.
I made a couple of mods, I actually knit in between two sizes to get it perfect. I lengthened the sleeves to full length because I always feel a bit weird and unfinished in three quarter length sleeves, and I finished it off in a corrugated rib, to match the collar.

 I also did the hem in the pink colour - no one else will be able to see that, but it amuses me. Hopefully I will find it as useful to wear as it was fun to knit.
