I finally finished my Marsh sweater that I blogged about here. I wore it on Saturday and now today at work, so far it's holding up to normal life.
A few notes and mods:
I wasn't sure if I'd like the length, I thought maybe it was too long, but I do like it. 26 inches maybe a bit more.
I have realized now after knitting 2 such sweaters that I don't like boat necks. I think this would be even more flattering if it were a v-neck.
I'm glad I added the 3 inches of extra stockinette over the bust and dropped the lace to just under.
If I were to knit this again I would also knit the smallest size. I'm shocked by how much it grew after soaking. I guess I should start washing my swatches. Lesson learned. Not that I like my garments to be skin tight but I think the bust is a bit too roomy, and unfortunately I'm not amply endowed in the bust area.
So overall I'm calling this a success and I'll be wearing it often over the next few months with a long sleeve t-shirt. I'm hoping in the spring and early summer I can wear a tank top under it and take advantage of the short sleeves.
