NaKniSweMo FO #1!

Wicked is finally finished! This poor sweater has been on the needles since early May and due to a series of rather unfortunate event is finally finished. I ought to try and remember that sweater patterns, as written, are almost always too short for me. In the case of this sweater, this resulted in ripping back and adding several inches to the bottom, which, in turn, used up more yarn than expected and I ran out with about half a sleeve left to go. Check out the before and after lengths:

But through the generosity of friends and ravelers Tinypurls, Spacekitty and Crashintoewe I was able to finish. Thanks gals!

Pattern: Wicked by Zephyr Style
Yarn: Malabrigo Worsted in Verde Adriana (4.25-ish skeins)
Needles: US 8
Mods: Lots of added length to the body!!
