Still Fitting...

OK, so sorry, still no pics but I have made progress on the sweater and tried it on again last night and it is still fitting! I am so happy about the latter I cannot even tell you.
The pattern calls for 2X2 ribbing for the collar, cuffs and hemline. I would like to do something a bit more interesting...any suggestions?
I suppose a picture would aid the brainstorming eh?

I Heart Ibuprofen

My hand is healing (Ibuprofen is my friend) and I am knitting a new sweater. I am very excited about it and will try to post some progress shots this weekend. It is a very simple, top down, raglan pullover. I needed some sweater basics after my Hourglass debacle.
So far, it fits and Cheri, of The Naked Sheep gave me some tips and needed encouragement yesterday.
The yarn is to die for, a merino, silk, cashmere blend tweed in a deep purple color. I'm pretty sure it is going to be one of those colors that is not captured well with the camera.
