Finished Object Wedgewood Blouse!!! (part 2)

So I finished it, and I blocked it.

Finished wedgewood blouse

That's a horrible photo of me because I look wide and my boobs are somehow at different levels (bra finding is on the agenda for this weekend). I should mention, that neither of these aspects are the fault of the fabulous photographer Ms. Needleworks, herself.

Personally, I think the neckline comes up way too high. I also think the sleeves are too tight, and it should be longer. You might noticed this as being generally too small. In fact, I'm realizing that I knit the pattern at least one size too small. Most of the patterns I've knit from Norah Gaughn's book I've had to make a bit smaller, so I thought I'd just start at the smaller size with this one and that it'd all work out. Nope. We'll see how much wear I get out of it. It was really fun to knit, and if i get the capital, I'd love to try knitting it again in the right size. If I really never wear it, it might end up with my roommate.

Knitting this project did teach me one thing, however, it requires visuals, and flickr just went down, so you're all going to have to learn my lesson either the hard way, or when I update tomorrow.
