Much Better

Here is my original Graylina.  My 2014 Olympics project finished in time for the  medal ceremonies but - too short.  At least, too short for my liking.


Here is the newly lengthened version, blocked and buttons sewn on.  
Isn't this much better?  Seen here with the skirt that inspired the knit.  Black boiled wool with purple inserts and trim.  

Version two is much better.  I feel comfortable in it and it is an easy wear. No tugging or pulling. Always my test.  I am a happy knitter now.

That was a good final outcome.

Awesome rescue knitting and a more than fair save, converting the FO into something you'll wear in style AND comfort. Thanks for the lessons in thinking out reversing a lace pattern.

That is a beautiful sweater. You are an amazing knitter.

Nice save! And it looks great with the skirt.

I love the new length and the lace pattern.
