Shirttail Update

Here's a squinty-faced photo of me at a library in my Sensational Shirttail. I didn't realize it was hanging a bit lopsided on me. DH took the photo and he doesn't pay much attention to stuff like that. But, see, how the sleeves are long enough for my monkey arms??!! It's so cosy, and I think it will be even better with buttons.

Here's a hanger shot:

So, now there is one sweater down, and I am almost done with another. I have all the braid edging done except for around the neck. I'm off today, so I think I'll be able to accomplish it this morning. I think I'll try to steam block the edging so it will dry faster and I can sew it on to the sweater sooner. Most of Alice Starmore's sweater patterns are older, boxy styles, and the St. Brigid is no exception. However, the cables are glorious! I'm going to try to give an update, here, later this evening.

OOH! Very nice sweater! I too have monkey arms and usually when I wash my long sleeve shirts they become 3/4 length shirts. Annoys me to no end.

The sensational shirttail looks great. I want to see it with the buttons!
