Finished tubey, at long last

My tubey ended up too big for reasons that I'm sure are completely my fault. So I tossed her in the dryer, and it's a marked improvement. I went with a solid using the Luxury Aran Cashmere from AC Moore, but, as a few of my blog's wise commenters pointed out, the stripes probably add to the garment's shapeliness. But I wore this to work today, and no one said, "Um, did you make that?" Always a good sign!

I think it looks gorgeous. Mine will be a bit large as well, I believe, so this raises my confidence about it, cause I was getting kind of down in the dumps.

That looks really great -- I think the looser fit is still very attractive, even if it's not exactly what you were shooting for.

The yarn looks like it has a beautiful sheen.

How long did you leave it in the dryer? I'm worried about mine being a little big, too.

It looks lovely! And I love the color. What needle size did you use to get the gauge with that yarn? (I was eyeing it with Tubey intentions last time I was there).

thanks for all of the compliments!

eden - i put it for maybe a total of 40 minutes, but i checked it constantly out of fear that i'd end up with a baby sweater.

olga -- i'm a loose knitter, so i used #6 needles.
