Madeira jumper: finished!
Because it was designed for a 36in bust and mine's 40in I had to do some resizing, and I think I made it a little too large, so it bunches up at the sides instead of having a nice smooth line. On the other hand, I did manage to get the armholes right even with the extra stitches, and the shoulders are perfect. I'd rather have a bit of bunching at the sides than sorrowful, droopy shoulders.
If I knitted it again, then, I wouldn't add so many extra stitches at the sides, and I'd extend the neck a little as the 'corners' at the top of the plunge neckline were closer to my collarbone than to my neck.
And here's the full shot! I nearly didn't include this one - clearly having my hair scraped back, no lippie and no jewellery is not my best look, but what the hell, you can see the jumper, and Mr R didn't seem in the mood to take pictures so there wasn't hair-faffing time.
Right! I'm off to drink Crabbies and work on my Jersey with a Soft Bow.
EDIT: The company I bought the yarn from have tweeted about the jumper, so I shall tell you all where I got it – I bought my yarn from Deramores. I am a bit of a yarn bargain hunter, and it was on discount, so I pounced!
