NaKniSweMo Complete & Early!

folded, originally uploaded by gradschoolknitter.

Even with the surgery required to fix the bottom from rolling up, my NaKniSweMo sweater is finished early!

Here's a picture of the whole thing:

Pattern: Folded by Veera Välimäki, size S
Yarn: Davidson Domy Heather in Sylvan Green, approx. 1.8 skeins (~850 yds)
Needles: US 2 & 3 (instead of 4 & 6)
Mods: Aside from using totally different needles (but on gauge... thus proving once again the necessity of gauge swatching, no matter how much one might hate it), I had to cut off the original waist hem ribbing (only 5 rows) and add some extra length in stockinette and 10 rows total of ribbing. The 10 rows vs 5 makes all the difference in the rolling problems. I wish I had added a little more length, but it'll suffice and not look like a belly top, so all's well that ends well, right?

Raveled here.

I think it turned out lovely. I really like the color.

Thanks so much! I'm so relieved that the sweater surgery worked out.

Looks great, you would never know you performed "surgery"!
