Temping II Finished

I have finally finished my Tempting II. Here it is in all its glory.
Pattern notes:
Yarn - Rowan Calmer in Coffee bean (as modelled in the pattern - how unoriginal of me!!!)
Modifications - k2tog instead of k2tog, k1 at the neckline as recommended by the SKC
My thoughts - I love this!!! The fit is great. The sleeves are just the right length. I even found a diamante buckle for it for a little bit of bling. The yarn is pretty yummy too - very soft and kinda spongy. Love it, love it, love it. However, I don't think I'll knit this again - 1x1 ribbing is killing.

I must also say a big Thank you to Jeanie for the SKC prize, Ashley Paige's Sexy Little Knits. It arrived a few weeks ago. I love the book especially the retro knits. However, my post 2 babies body is not ready for that much exposure.

I'm also excited for the next knitalong. I want to do both but I think I'll probably realistically only complete one. I'm on the hunt for sutiable yarn!!!

I love your top. It fits you great! Where did you find your buckle?

I found the buckle in Liberty in London. If you'd like one, I could try and get one for you. Let me know.
