I've been remiss

I never posted a picture of the VK fair isle sleeve sweater. Well, after seeing Knitensity's go at it, I am posting the picture of the final result. BTW, great job on yours, Nikki.
This knit was a killer. I knitted the whole thing in KnitPick's Merino Style. The bodice and green sleeve are on size 5's, but I had to go down to 2's in order to get anything like gauge on the fair isle sleeve. That sleeve was a bitch, but it's beautiful. I like the sweater very much. It's really warm and it definitely fits my definition of something worth knitting. But the collar trim will certainly go before I wear it again. It's frilly and weird. I can put something nicer there.
