What are you most proud of? I can't believe the fit I got. It was so tempting to change things as I went along (that's just what I do :) but because I was doing a test for the software and the "rules" were to follow the pattern exactly, that's just what I did and WOW. I love the way the lace and birds work too. I feel special when I wear it now. Thanks Amy and crew.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Measure carefully following the instructions in the guide. Knit a large swatch, wash and dry it as you intend to wash your garment. Trust the software to give you a fantastic fit and you are going to get a fantastic sweater. You can choose your sleeve and body length, neck depth etc and this class will give you the added advantage of knowing where to put all of those line.

Awe, thank you so much. If you haven't tried Amy's class and Custom Fit software online you really need to give it a try. It's a game changer. I just used customfit.makewearlove.com. It takes a bit of effort to put in your measurements but then you can just make anything at any gauge. I just found the lace pattern for the accents and put the little birdies on wherever. thanks so much for the wonderful words everyone :-)
