Bright, yellow, happy and finished

I was a bit concerned when I finished Vitamin D, because it hang rather stiffly, I didn't like the  way the shortrows looked and it just felt a tiny bit not right.

Before blocking

And then I blocked it. it's lovely. The shoulders fit me perfectly,  the colour makes my heart sing and I have been wearing it constantly.

The yarn is Patonyle sock yarn, which I bought (for four dollars a ball!) from the Wangaratta Woolen Mill on a work trip in April. I love this yarn. despite being a basic, commercial machine dyed sock yarn, it has a depth of colour and a softness without being limp.

I had my doubts when I was knitting this, but it came out just so wearable and sunshiny. I did lengthen it by one set of eyelets, and I'm glad I did, otherwise I think it would have been shorter than I wanted it. 

I also lengthened the sleeves to full length, just because I prefer them that way. All in all a winner of a project.
