Huzzah it fits!
Huzzah I think it actually looks ok!
Huzzah no more purling for a little while!

Pattern: Miette by Andi Satterlund
A quite well written pattern, probably let down a bit by my sub-standard knitting skills (I mean, look how uneven my stockinette is. ugh purling). Also probs my yarn choice, being a lighter weight than called for in the pattern, the lace on the collar/sleeves is not as pronounced. Even so, I managed to get an actual wearable garment out of it! Not bad eh? Further details on mods etc on my Rav project page.
Yarn: Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 8ply in Lime. Do not make something that touches your skin with this yarn. I have skin like an elephant but this is ITCHY. Softened up a bit on washing, but may do a conditioner soak to try to coax it to be softer still.
Ravelled here and uploaded to Handmaker's Factory here.
p.s. I might torture you by blogging this again if I can ever photograph the damn thing true to colour. I'm thinking a photoshoot at La Belle Miette? It's not about the macarons, I swear... it's about the knitting...
