Picovoli!

I am so excited! This is my first-ever hand-knit garment that actually fits! I tried it on before blocking and was a bit concerned about the fit. Not long enough, a little tight in the chest, rolly like you wouldn't believe. And why can't I feel my arms? Could the armholes be too snug?
Argh, somebody cut me out of this thing!

Now, I'm so glad nobody did. I blocked Picovoli, I visited it twice a day to see if it was dry yet. And today, magic happened: not only was it dry, but when I unpinned it, most of the roll was gone, and it fits like a glove!

Nice!!! It fits perfectly and looks terrific on you.

I really need to make one... (as if my to-knit list isn't already a mile long!)
