UFOlympic Gold for Picovoli!

I signed up for the Unfinished Olympics to give me incentive to finish Picovoli -- and it worked! I used Elann's Luna in Coppered Sienna. I added a couple extra decreases and finished it off with a row of single crochet around the arms and neck and a wider crochet hem. I love it! It fits great, no body shaper needed under it even. Woot! It is very comfy. I made it to wear under a cardigan to work and it is good enough to wear. There are lots of newbie errors and flaws, but I am proud of it nonetheless.

Thanks to Kathy for all her help and her great pattern. And thanks to the lovely hostesses of the KAL.

More details on the process are on my blog. I'm looking forward to the next sexy knit!

Gay, that's a black Lab and Liver-spotted Dalmation cross. I sure wish he was a German Shorthair, I love those dogs and he'd probably be a lot better behaved! But big dogs are great, so much to hug. :)
