fini

It's done!



Yarn: Elsebeth Lavold Silky Wool, 6 skeins of colour 10 woad
Needles: 3.5mm addi turbos for the body, 3.25mm dpns for the garter rib in the sleeve, 3.5mm and 3.75mm addi turbos for the upper sleeve, 3mm addi lace for the button/neck bands
Mods: Used smaller needles for narrower sleeve/cuff. Knit 4 fewer rows in the neckband. Knit 2 more rows in each front band. Made 4 st button holes to accomodate slightly larger buttons.
Notes: The sleeves are 3" longer than they should be. I hope my bf likes long sleeves! Lots of vm in the yarn which was annoying. Overall, I am very pleased. I ended up calling my bf and let her pick the buttons. She chose the antiqued silver.
