I finished the sweater almost two weeks ago. I am very pleased how it turned out:
Pattern - 8 Days a Week by Mary Annarella
Yarn - Madelinetosh DK Twist in Seaglass
Modifications - I had to lengthen the armscye (armhole) about an inch; otherwise, none.
Started - 1/4/2015
Finished - 2/22/2015
I am happy to report that blocking did whip those socks into submission, but I couldn't find the blue sock blockers I usually use to style pictures of socks...sorry.
Pattern - Hippy Ripply Retro Socks by Helen Darmara
Yarn - Rainy Days and Wooly Dogs Laudanum Lache GothSocks in Barbie
Modifications - I made them top down.
