oblique – done, finished, over!

I am finally ready to declare my Oblique done. Finally. (Ravelry details.)

Sorry I didn't smile. I have a hard time photographing myself. Anyway, since I last thought I was done I took out the ribbing and did it on smaller needles (6s instead of 9s) and I undid the k2togs holding the crossed part together. It was pulling oddly. Instead I tacked the sections together at the ribbing and at the edge, so it stays. I think it looks much better.

My favorite part of this sweater, though, is the side shaping, I think.

    Really nice job! I agree about the shaping. That looks like a lot of work!

    Beautiful! And it looks really great on you. I envy your skill and patience when it comes to getting things right. I still have not knit a proper sweater (working on a shrug at the moment, that has already been ripped back because of mistakes in the lace) but I think it is time to commit to learning how to properly fit a garment to a person. Isn't that what handmade is about?

    Thanks! I must confess that I have more unfinished sweaters laying around my house than I have finished ones. The others have a chance to be finished, though, right?

    Woot! Congratulations! It looks fantastic. And dude, if you finished this one, you can finish any of those sweaters lying around!!

    Thanks, Teenuh! I hope you're right about those other sweaters. Darn them. ๐Ÿ˜‰
