I did finish this last Friday, so I spent the weekend in it. It turned out so nice I'm considering knitting a second one already. I love everything about it, the design which is fabulous, and the yarn is also amazing (not to mention incredibly cheap).
I didn't make many changes, except I knit this in the round and added an extra decrease at the waistline. Also, I added about 3.5 inches to the total length of the body (trust me if you're considering making this - the pattern length is way too short). Even so, I could've probably added another couple of inches there, but I don't think I would've had enough yarn. There wasn't much time for more knitting or sewing during the weekend, but I did cast on for the hoodie. Now what am I thinking, knitting a sweater using 3.25 mm needles ? I really must love this design a lot, so let's see if I can finish it now. It will be my traveling project for the Iceland vacation, but with so much to see I doubt I'll be able to concentrate on any knitting ...
