Shirley Paden Square Bodice Pullover
I was reading a post by The Sewing Lawyer about what she called The World's Oldest UFO; while mine doesn't compete (started in 2008), it is still old, and now is finished yay! This is the Square Bodice Pullover Interweave Knits Magazine Spring 2003.
I'm very pleased with how this turned out after all I struggled. The yarn Paton's Grace is very pretty and pleasant to work with. I modified the neckline and made it not as wide as the original by binding off less stitches in the center, with my narrow shoulders wide necklines just fall off. Because of this the crochet neckline finish had to change, which I explain in my Ravelry project page for those of you that are interested.
I had the perfect weather day today to wear it, cool and breezy!
By the way I am loving my short haircut; I have no patience for hair and my stylist knowing me has given a minimum fuzz cut, this is the look of just wash and go, I didn't even have time this morning for any hair product!
Sewing up the seams in this sweater has been the only sewing I have done since my weekend in NYC, I have a zillion projects in my wish list, let's see which one makes it to the top!
