Custom Fit Sweater - Success!

Before, I wrote about finally being convinced to try my hand at making a sweater.  Well, the time has come to report on the results, and I have to say, I'm a convert!

The sweater fits me nearly perfectly!  (The discrepancies are due to my impatience with the swatches...had I made a longer one, I would have been able to notice the stretch in the fabric over time.)  The sleeves are a little long, but the rest of it is perfect!
Even though it looks a little off in these pictures due to the fact that I'm wearing a puffy dress, I think you can sufficiently tell how happy I am with the results!  And I just love the buttons!
