Love the sweater you're wearing in the photo. Just saw it the other day somewhere on the net. You did a great job!

Very nice post. I learned a few things myself.

Forget the knits -- is that your library? I'm smitten! I can't wait to see you Thursday!

What a good idea to really take a hard look at the success or lack thereof of various finished garments. I think your analysis probably lets you avoid similar errors in the future. I should try this, or perhaps just thinking harder in general? :)
