Modeling the Bodice

It took like 2 days to dry, but the bodice is finally ready for modeling! Here I am in my sweater--don't mind the serious expression--it was taken early in the morning (why yes, those ARE pajama pants!) :)



I think the sweater came out beautifully. The unevenness of my colorwork went away in blocking, so that's awesome. I did that extra 1" in the bodice, and I almost think I could've done a little more! The only thing I'm concerned about is the fact that it seems to bulge a bit at the point where the ribbing ends and the colorwork begins. It did it pre-blocking as well, so I'm not sure what's up with that.

Can't wait to see everyone else's when they finish! :)

Great job!! And it looks wonderful on you. I wish I had known to check and add a few inches to my bodice before the steeks. Mine doesn't really fit so well, because the ribbing rides up. I think yours looks great!
