My April project is done (just 6 days behind schedule!)

It's the ubiquitous February Lady Sweater in Dream in Color Classy.  A big splurge, but worth it.

(Excuse the poor photobooth picture, but it's better than nothing, no?)

I made very few modifications to the pattern as written.  I did decrease away one of the pattern repeats under each arm, because I thought the arms would be too floppy.  I toyed with doing a bit of waist shaping, but that seemed too daunting in a lace pattern.

It still needs buttons, as you can see, but I'm wearing it today anyway!

How cute are you! This turned out just beautifully, and it really suits you. Nice work! Six days behind schedule is pretty darn good in my book.

Pretty FLS! Love that color. What I can see of it looks awesome.

Well, it's ubiquitous for a reason--it's darn cute! I love the color, and I like your addition of a pin at the top. :)
