A little ditty of details

Ok, I am so close to finishing "Lucky"...but I must tell you, I think I made it too small. Yes, that's right. *I have changed my mind, it is not too small. I just retried it on with safety pins and it is fine. I am hoping the neckband will help the shape and WW will take off the excess 10+lbs so I don't look like a hoochy momma in it. I measured inbetween sizes, so I did the smaller knowing that I will loose the lbs I have put on. It also is shorter than I would have like (Winnie also had the same comment) I would add 2" to the length. I love the 3/4 sleeves and thank god I made them bigger in width!
Here are some little shots of some details so far: The sidetie sewn in the seam and the "boatneck" that I hope will be fixed with the neckband.

I just had to show you my armpit! I love the fake grafted seams and invisible mattress stitch as well as the work on raglan seems.

And here she is, awaiting her neckband (which I hope I will knit today!)

Ok, so my photography is lacking some expertise in flash/no flash work...the colour actually is true in the sidetie photo.

Your Lucky looks beautiful! Congratulations!
Where did you get your blocking board?

Ack! The sizing thing always freaks me out, no matter how many times I measure! I guess that's because we can't try the thing on before we make it, huh? I'm so relieved that you think it will fit well. :)

It is amazing how every picture you take of your Lucky, it shows a different color--all of them beautiful!

I am really interested in the sleeves and how you did them... could you post about this on the knitalong blog when you are done? I know several people could benefit from that!
