Wrappy: the home stretch

I have achieved sleeves! As my fiance is in town, I had him take some reasonable pictures of wrappy. (The sleeves still need to be blocked, sewn on, and hemmed; the body is missing its trimming.)

It's not perfect, but I don't think it's coming out half bad. The wrinkles over the hips are due to my blocking a very 3D object on a very 2D surface (I plan to fix this with duct tape, believe it or not). The front can be worn multiple ways; I still don't know if I like it this way better, or whether I should put ties on it. Any thoughts?


  1. it looks fab--very flattering! i'd totally make it.
    sorry i missed te last night. another 15-hour day (amid a stretch of many of them), unfortunately. i did attempt much frogging of my tempting ii, which was frustrating enough that i'm actually thinking of scrapping the whole damned sweater. yuck. anyway, i hope to return soon--i haven't forgotten that i have your needles and yarn!

  2. I'm sorry you've had so much work, lisabe! You could always just set the sweater aside until you're less frustrated with it, and think about it then...

    (I could use my needles back sometime, though, because I can't really start my next purple sock very well without em.)
