Comfy Celtic

What are you most proud of? Because the sweater was very wide in the back and droopy along the neckline (I made it too big and should've done a smaller size), I signed up for the Sweater Surgery course and corrected the sides and the neckline. I kept the length int he sleeves because I like them long. The photo with the buttons shows the sweater with the corrections. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure yourself before selecting a size, do the swatch and buy stitch markers in at least four different colors.

Thank you. I love the Soft Donegal yarn. It really it is soft and very warm. I wish Craftsy had it in more colors.
