LBT Done

I joined this knitalong not too long ago (my first) and I'm proud to say I'm done! I cast on for this on Sept 20 and finished Oct 3. I had some doubts about how the top was turning out as I was knitting. I kept trying it on with the thought "I can fix this later if I have to". Blocking helped enormously.

Yarn: Knitpicks Merino Style in “Frost” on size 7 and 8 needles.

Modifications: I didn’t switch needle sizes until the decreases and I added a row of YO, K2Tog for the ribbon to go through. Otherwise, I followed the pattern to the letter. I also tried steam blocking this time instead of my usual wet blocking odyssey.

WOW!!! That is gorgeous! Excellent job done! I love the ribbon running through it and it looks GREAT on you! You look very happy with it and so you should : )

I've just finished the fifth lace repeat on mine after frogging a first attempt back on the 25th of Sept or so. I'm a little nervous it may not fit me (I'm knitting the largest size).

Again, great job!

Looks awesome! congratulations on a finished sweater! That ribbon is a great idea: You can probably use it to cinch the waist in, too! (Mine is a little baggy right there.) Beautiful!

The ribbon is a great idea! I'm going to see if I can work one of those through before giving up and frogging mine. Your shoulder straps look way better than mine too- wider. Awesome!
