One more sleeve

This is my Simple knitted bodice so far. I am using Malabrigo yarn and I already know I will love this sweater. The design is amazing and the yarn is delicious and so soft. I made a few changes, like adding couple of inches of stockinette stitch after the neckline, decreasing more stitches for the waist and substituting garter stitch for the purl ridges. Unfortunately, I ran out of yarn when I completed the first sleeve and the LYS where I bought the yarn is out too. I ordered some more online and now I am keeping my fingers crossed for the colorway too match. Posted by Picasa

I am making the size extra small. I first started the size small because that`s what is better suited for my measurments, but the sweater looked too loose soo I ripped the last repeat of rows 2-9 to get to the size XS. My row guage is slightly smaller that the original, that`s why the neckline is set higher, but that`s fine with me.
