Thank heavens for the magic of blocking!
Willow's Mi Escuelita sweater fits!
Here's a close up of the cables on the back of the sweater - I really like this detail (and Willow's rock star pose).
And her "I've been caught look" is good, too:
Pattern: Mi Escuelita from Knitty Fall 2009.
Yarn: Valley Yarns Valley Superwash in Grape (bought at Stitches East a few years ago).
Needles: Knitpicks US Size 5 16" circulars and dpns
Modifications: The only modification was an unintentional one - the sleeves are slightly different because I wasn't paying attention. I was already a good 4-5 inches past the point when I noticed and I wasn't industrious enough to rip it back and start over. It's a design feature...
Would I make this pattern again? Honestly, I don't know. I don't care for the construction of the shawl collar or how it lies - maybe if I could figure out a dfferent collar I would be much happier with the pattern and end result.
And lastly, a cool accidental shot:
Willow was turning around and I hit the shoot button on the camera without meaning to - but with a fun result.
