Here's my first FO from Knitting Lingerie Style, sans model (it's for my sister-in-law, who's tiny, so there's no way I'm getting it on me).
Knit with the suggested yarn in the suggested color (creative, I know): Cascade Sierra (80% cotton/20% merino wool) in off-white.
Size: 33 1/2"
No alterations made. I did decide to do the waist shaping.
Hope it fits, and looks good, on her!
Next up: the Bed Jacket (finally), which is blocking as I type.

This thing is going fast. Just a sleeve and the two sleeve edgings left to go. I'm making the 43 1/2 inch size. I was torn whether to make that or the 39", but I think this one will fit quite well, especally since it's a layering piece.
I'm using Cascade Sierra in color 45 (a deep sky blue). The color in pretty accurate, at least on my monitor.
I can't wait to finish it. Unfortunately, as I suffer from the second sock syndrome, I also suffer from the second sleeve syndrome. I'm still struggling through the sleeves for the lace-front sweater. Working in a tiny guage for that doesn't help when I'm working on this sweater, either.
Looking forward to seeing all of your things!
